Caledon OPP Supports “The Sweet Life Road Show”

The “Sweet Life Road Show” raises awareness about the deadliest road safety risks and helps teens create strategies to protect themselves. Sponsored by the CAA South Central Ontario and delivered by Teens Learn to Drive Inc., the show will engage students from Robert F. Hall Catholic Secondary School on the dangers of risky behaviors while operating a motor vehicle.

This program for Grade 10 students focuses on the top 10 causes of teen driver crashes. Key messaging addresses drinking and driving, seatbelts and airbags, graduated drivers’ licence system and sharing the road with trucks. Students will have the opportunity to use hands-on games and driving simulators to demonstrate the impact of driving while distracted.

“Car crashes are the number one cause of death and injury to teens. We provide them with the tools to make better driving decisions,” stated organizer, Anne-Marie Hayes, President of Teens Learn to Drive Inc.

Schedule of Events:

Robert F. Hall Catholic Secondary School – Tuesday, October 6 at 9 a.m. and 11:40 a.m.
