December 4: Hang up and drive focus of OSAID workshop

Confederation Secondary School will host the Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving (OSAID) North Central Regional Workshop on Friday, December 4th, 2015 from 9 am to 1:30 pm. Over 80 students from across the Greater Sudbury area will participate in the day, with “hang up and drive” as the primary message. 

Keynote speakers include Matt Evans, executive director of OSAID, and Jaymie-Lynn Hancock, sister of DJ Hancock who was killed by an impaired driver last year. There will also be presentations from Arrive Alive, Action Sudbury, local Crown Attorney Len Walker, MADD, and Greater Sudbury Police Services. Students will learn how to promote safe driving in their respective schools and the community. 

“The OSAID message of always driving safe and sober is one that resonates with everyone,” says Ashleigh McBain, OSAID Board Director and Confederation Secondary School teacher. “This generation has the ability to eradicate impaired and distracted driving, as they are the future leaders and drivers in our community.”

According to OSAID, car collisions are still the number one killer of teens in Canada.  Distracted driving is quickly becoming the most common reason behind these collisions. 

This event is being sponsored by a variety of community organizations, including Action Sudbury, Topper’s Pizza, Metro Val Caron, Tim Hortons Val Caron, Pita Pit Val Caron, GK Services, Shoppers Drug Mart Hanmer, Rexall Val Caron, Discovery Aviation Academy, Arrive Alive and Dairy Queen Val Caron.
