The Boys & Girls Clubs of America and The UPS Foundation have teamed up in Manchester to keep teen drivers safe through UPS Rode Code—an educational, fun and free program to teach local Manchester teens the dangers of distracted driving and ways to stay safe on the road.
To celebrate the launch of this program in Manchester we’re hosting a free event for teens and families on Friday, May 30 at the Boys & Girls Club of Manchester Union Street Clubhouse from 7:30p.m.-9:30p.m. At the event, teens will have the opportunity to test their skills on driving simulators, participate in a Road Code obstacle course, take a safe driving quiz and sign a petition to pledge safety behind the wheel.
Join us for an evening of fun-filled activities and help us keep Manchester roads safer. Event details are as follows:
o Race the clock in a fun and challenging obstacle course, highlighting the importance of putting distractions away before driving to school
o Test your driving skills with our lifelike driving simulators, presenting real-life scenarios on how distracted driving affects safety on the road
o Sign the national petition pledging safety behind the wheel
o Take the Road Code Report Card to quiz yourself on safe driving knowledge
o Speak with representatives from the community on techniques for eliminating distractions on the road
