The TMA Bucks Community Traffic Safety Program is seeking high school students to represent Bucks County in a regional event this spring.
The May 2 event will take place at the Montgomery Township Community and Recreation Center, located at 1030 Horsham Road in Montgomeryville.
The 3rd Annual Teen Safe Driving ROADeo is being held by the TMA Bucks Community Traffic Safety Program in collaboration with the Chester County Highway Safety Project, Delaware County Transportation Management Association, and Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services.
The aim of the event is to educate, interact with, and entertain teens, while promoting safe driving practices.
The educational event is free of charge and open to all high school students in Bucks County. The event will run from 8:30 am to 2 pm. Interested students can register online at http://www.tmabucks.com/event/southeastern-pennsylvania-teen-safe-driving-roadeo/. All students must have a parental permission slip to attend the event, but a driver’s license is not necessary to participate. Students without a driver’s license will need a parent, guardian, or school chaperone to accompany them to the event.
The event will feature several rotating stations, including a driving simulator, a mock traffic stop by police, a blind spot demonstration, a vehicle service station, information on drunk and distracted driving, and an interactive presentation.
The TMA Bucks Community Traffic Safety Program Manager Carly Mannon, said, “Students will enjoy food and drinks, play fun games, have the chance to win giveaways, all while learning to be safe drivers. If your child is in high school, this is something you want them to participate in. We are excited to have Bucks County well represented at this year’s event.”
Parents, teens, or schools with questions about the event can contact Carly Mannon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
