Lynchburg Police Use Partnership To Encourage Safe Driving Among Teens

Posted:

Lynchburg, VA - The Lynchburg Police Department is conducting a traffic safety campaign to encourage Lynchburg high school students to form safe driving habits especially with the use of seatbelts.

They are partnering with the organization Youth of Virginia Speak Out About Traffic Safety (YOVASO).

Students are being challenged to make it their mission to SURVIVE THE DRIVE, SLOW DOWN, and BUCKLE UP.  

During this safety campaign, School Resource Officers at Heritage and E.C. Glass High Schools along with students involved in the YOVASO program, will be engaging high school students in several ways:  Mission Possible posters will be displayed around each high school, information cards with traffic safety tips will be handed out during lunch and other school activities, a message board will be used to encourage seatbelt use, and there will be a seatbelt check by students and members of the LPD Traffic Safety and Crime Prevention Units.

The seatbelt check for E.C. Glass High School is scheduled for 03/21/2014 at 2:30pm.  For more information about this campaign, please call Lt. Dave Ragland in the LPD Crime Prevention Unit at 455-6165.
