Cone Zone Go Kart Track At Abbotsford Agrifair – July 31 – August 3 2015

Agrifair logo Join us at the Cone Zone Go Kart Track , where kids aged 10 to 16 can learn about    roadside safety while driving around a large circuit complete with real world work  zone hazards.  Participants at the ride will be instructed by certified traffic control  personnel on how to navigate a “cone zone.”

This feature at the Agrifair 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.”

New this year, activities for road users of all ages:

Cone Zone Selfie Station:  Participants in the “selfie station” will have a chance to win a Samsung Galaxy Tablet.

Distracted Driving Graffiti Artist Competition:  Throughout the weekend Graffiti artists will be at the event participating in a graffiti competition.  The purpose is to create art that speaks to distracted driving. The winning artist will receive a cash prize.

Cone Zone Distracted Driving Simulator:  Adults and youth are invited to drive through a simulated Cone Zone environment.

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