Cold weather is here and so is the need to let people know about safe winter driving.
To help raise safety awareness and encourage drivers to get ready for winter driving, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure teamed up with Mainroad Contracting, DriveWise BC and Kal-Tire at a Victoria Royals game on November 15, 2013 to engage drivers in a unique way.
The Shift Into Winter campaign members will also be hosting activities at a Vancouver Giants game on January 10, 2014.
Think your winter driving skills are road ready? A crowd of fans lined up for DriveWise’s driving simulator to test their talents. Some did well…others…not so much.
During breaks in the game, fans were also busy taking the winter driving safety quiz for a chance to win money toward a set of winter tires. Learning safety and prizes…not a bad combination.
With BC drivers across the province making their way to hockey games on wintry roads, what better spot for a little Shift Into Winter public outreach than the good ol’ hockey game?
