We want to remind everyone to drive safely.
We have painted a crosswalk to our new fitness center and have added guardrails to a road that has had multiple accidents. We have also made posters to spread awareness of the new safe passing law that was put in place.
Everyone volunteered to complete different tasks so we could complete them by the deadline.
Use of resources:
We spoke with the town to implement the guardrails, discussed the price points of added a crosswalk with our administration. We also scheduled a program for the senior class with the NJ state police.
Use of media:
We made a safe teen driving video that was shared with the student body and teachers.
We had a guardrail put in place on a road where multiple accidents had occurred involving teen drivers.
The seniors will be questioned after their program with the NJ state police. Their answers will be used to improve our campaign next year.
By spreading awareness of the new safe passing law and adding a guardrail will protect for generations.
Unexpected Lessons Learned:
We were grateful for the community being so willing to help.
