March 4-6 Drop It And Drive® youth presentation tour

Burnaby and Surrey, BC

The DIAD team is delivering four presentations at three schools in Burnaby and Surrey, BC to students from grades 8 to 12. Our focus for school seminars is to provide students with the science of ‘how and why’ distracted driving, and distracted walking, is risky behaviour. Positive messaging and even the use of humour, as well as sharing personal stories and practical examples of real-world risks, help engage students in a conversation about the potential consequences of a moment’s distraction. At the end of each seminar, we want students to feel empowered, through increased knowledge and understanding, to be road safety ambassadors within their families, school and community.
