Each year in October, Safe Community Wood Buffalo hosts Parachute Canada's National Teen Driver Safety Week right here in Wood Buffalo. During this week, we visit high schools throughout the region bringing road safety information on topics such as impaired & distracted driving. As well as risk related driving such as speeding & stunting. This initiative is focused on our young drivers, building awareness of road safety so they can learn positive driving habits early in their driving experience.
The October 2020 program moved online in contest form. Upon completion of a road safety survey, the youth were added to a draw for a set of AirPods. For every 200 entries after the first, we added another set of AirPods to give away. With close to 400 completed surveys we had 3 lucky winners!
