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.
