Participation in Local Community Events

Events in 2021:

  • Walk and Roll:  Last year, in addition to Just Drive coloring pages, wrist bands, and stickers; we handed out reusable cloth shopping bags at the first stop of Walk and Roll.  The bags had our logo and a distracted driving message.  Our hope is parents will use these bags and spread the message year-round.
