Congratulations to Ben Bouzhmehrani, a Simon Fraser University criminology student who attended SFU Winterfest and won a vehicle safety kit with one year of roadside assistance.
SFU winner picSFU winner picThe focus of the annual event is to help everyone on campus to stay safe and healthy throughout the winter season. Road Safety at Work representatives spent a chilly day on the “hill” on November 4th, sharing Shift into Winter messages with SFU students and staff.
When we caught up with Ben to deliver his prize, he agreed that slowing down and adjusting driving behaviours are important ways of being ready for unpredictable winter conditions. Preparation is the key to prevention, especially when it comes to avoiding wintertime crashes. Ben is grateful to be part of a society that has initiatives like Shift Into Winter that provide education and raise awareness to help make winter driving safer for university students, and all British Columbians.
