Students create anti-drug message
The Race Against Drugs Campaign carries the moniker R.A.C.E., which stands for respect, action, courage and Excellence. It aims to teach youngsters about the dangers of drunk driving, operating motor vehicles while impaired by drugs and the dangers of talking and texting while driving.
Participating students will work in ‘Pit Stops’ where they will learn about these dangers. The students from local schools have also created ‘Think of Me’ envelopes, depicting scenes of possible outcomes of impaired and distracted driving. The envelopes will be handed out by traffic cops to drivers getting a ticket.
The event is planned for the Barrie YMCA, top of Toronto Street, Wednesday to Friday.
