Half a million students participate in National Students Against Impaired and Distracted Driving Day 2007
Toronto, Ontario – Over 500,000 students participated in National Students Against Impaired and Distracted Driving Day (NSAIDD) yesterday, the ninth annual observance of the awareness campaign.
Students at schools across the country organized a variety of events, including assemblies, activities with vision-impaired goggles, interactive learning displays, demonstrations and presentations, all aimed at promoting safe and sober driving.
“Deeply inspiring, Canadian students travel right to the heart of impaired and distracted driving issues, sharing the strategies required to end drinking and impaired driving,” said Frances Wdowczyk, Executive Director of The Student Life Education Company. “On NSAIDD Day 2007, Canada will witness the dedication of hundreds of thousands of Canadian students from coast to coast positively influence their peers and communities, and invite all to unite in the effort to eliminate these issues.”
