Cone Zone Go Kart Ride

Cloverdale Rodeo & Country Fair
May 16 to 19, 2014
Cloverdale Rodeo and Exhibition Park

Join us at the Cone Zone Go Kart ride, where kids aged 10 to 15 can learn about roadside safety while driving around a large circuit complete with real world work zone hazards.  After  completing the  obstacle  course,  drivers  will  be  entered to  win  a mini  iPad.

Participants at the ride will be  instructed  by  certified  traffic  control  personnel  on  how  to navigate  a  “cone  zone.”  Parents are  also  encouraged  to  get  involved  by  taking  the  Cone Zone  safety  course  and  participating  as  a  Traffic  Control  Person while  their  child  is driving  the  circuit.

New this year, kids and their families will have the opportunity to have their photo taken creating a lasting memory of the event.

This feature at the rodeo is  in  support  of  the  Cone  Zone  Campaign, a  roadside  safety  initiative  that  encourages  drivers  to take  care  when  driving  near  roadside  workers.

Their  message:  Behind  every  work  zone  cone  is  a  worker  in  a  vulnerable  position.  Each cone stands for someone’s father, mother, son or daughter.

Thousands of  people  working  by  the  roadside  in  BC are  counting  on  drivers to slow  down  and  drive  with  care  when  approaching  a  “Cone  Zone.”

For  more  information  about  the  Cone  Zone  Campaign,  drivers  are  encouraged  to  visit ConeZoneBC.com,  where  you  will find  resources,  tips  and  helpful  information  about  safely navigating  through  roadside  work  zones.
