Cone Zone community event
Consider creating your own Cone Zone themed event. This could range from something very simple to more complex such as:
- Set up a booth and distribute information re: roadside worker safety at a public event in your community.
- Create a Cone Zone themed children’s event, where kids ride their bikes around a circuit of cones in a park.
- Set up a road rodeo where drivers are encouraged to test drive new models of cars and drive safely through a course with cones set up. This could be set up in the parking lot at your local mall and you could partner with other organizations such as a car manufacturer or local community group.
- Create a Cone Zone themed car wash where drivers enter an area marked with cones and information is distributed re: driving safely in roadside work zones.
