Toronto, Ontario – Drivers are invited to take the Pace Car pledge to be a safe and responsible driver. NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin and FedEx Express Canada have teamed up with Safe Kids Canada on the program.
“On the track, speed is an important part of winning races, but it can have drastic consequences on the streets in our communities,” Hamlin said. “You can help make a difference. Take the Pace Car pledge to be a safe and responsible driver, and help make your roads safer for all Canadians.”
Those who take the pledge recognize that car use affects the “livability” of other residents’ streets, just as theirs affects others; agree to drive the posted speed limit on all roads, stop to let pedestrians cross, and be courteous to bicyclists and other road users; and minimize their car use by walking, cycling, transit and carpooling.
Pace Car window clings and bumper stickers that let other drivers know why a vehicle is driving within the speed limit can be ordered from Safe Kids Canada.
Those who visit and “like” the Pace Car Drivers Facebook page will be entered in a random draw to win one of 10 Denny Hamlin autographed diecast cars. For more information, visit.
