Shift into Winter at Teen Fest 2014

Come join us at Teen Fest in Victoria and the Fraser Valley for an interactive Winter Driving Awareness Event.

The Coast Capital Savings Victoria TeenFest will be taking place Saturday, November 1, 2014 at Pearkes Recreation Centre, 3100 Tillicum Rd., Saanich.  The event starts at 11:00 AM and ends at
5:30 PM.

The Coast Capital Savings Surrey TeenFest will be taking place Saturday, January 31, 2015 at the Agriplex (at the Cloverdale Rodeo & Exhibition Fair Grounds), 6050A – 176th Street, Surrey, BC. The event starts at 11:00 AM and ends at 5:30 PM.

Teen Fest participants, motorists and residents can Shift into Winter by engaging into some fun, hands on winter driving training.

DriveWise, specializing in road safety and driver education, will be on site with their Winter Driving 3D Simulator inviting participants to learn how to drive in the snow and how to prepare for the unexpected.

Plow Truck Safety – A Mainroad plow truck will be parked at the event where participants can learn what happens when a plow truck is operating at full speed with the wing extended.  Motorists and residents will know firsthand the risks of passing a plow truck and the impact to their safety and vehicle.  Through an interactive activity, we will demonstrate to drivers (and future drivers) what they can see in the blind spots of a plow truck. Participants will be able to climb into the Plow Truck Operator’s seat and will be challenged to spot the vehicle positioned on the side, in front of the wing and in front of the plow truck. This will visually demonstrate the limited field of vision that a Plow Truck Operator has and why it is important for everyone to keep a safe distance and always stay alert when approaching highway maintenance vehicles such as snow plows and salt or sand trucks.

Kal Tire will on hand to answer your questions and provide valuable tire safety information | learn how to be safe on the road.

We’re giving away a Samsung Galaxy Tablet – for your chance to win it, check out the Shift into Winter Selfie Photo Contest station positioned next to Mainroad equipment displays.
