Teenage students of driving age are participating in the first Road to Safety Program in Milton sponsored by the Fulton County Board of Education, Protect Milton, Inc., and Access Milton, Inc. as well as the Milton Police Department and Alpharetta Police Department.
Milton High School and Alpharetta High School students have been working hard these past weeks on videos that present a message to their fellow students on the dangers associated with inexperienced drivers and the roads they travel in their towns. The deadline for the video submission was October 29th. Judging is occurring this week and the winner announced next week. The winner will receive many prizes including a day of defensive driving at the Richard Petty defensive driving school at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
This program was created to raise awareness in our young drivers and save lives in the long run. Just recently in October a teenage driver flipped her vehicle on Freemanville Road in Milton at 4:00 in the afternoon. This is exactly why the program was created.
Some of the sponsors include All My Son's Moving & Storage, Council Member Joe Longoria, Bobby G's Chicago Eatery, Scoops Ice Cream, the Moore Family, RBC Bank of Milton, Staples, and I Love NY Pizza!
The FCBOE and all sponsors are very excited about this program and next year will include most all North Fulton High Schools as this will be an annual event. For more information on how you or your company or business can participate in donating prizes to the students please contact Tim Enloe (firstname.lastname@example.org) Owner/Operator of Access Milton or Lisa Cauley (email@example.com), Chair of Protect Milton.
Winners will have their videos shown to both Alpharetta and Milton City Councils and will be presented with awards at the winning school's City Hall at a date to be determined in November. Winner's video will be showcased for one week straight in the top news spot on Access Milton and all videos will be shown to the students in both schools as well. Right now the Principals have a friendly wager going as to who's school will win.
In the end, everyone wins!
