Join us at the Cone Zone Go Kart ride, where kids aged 10 to 16 can learn about roadside safety while driving a Go Kart around a large circuit complete with real world work zone hazards. Participants at the ride will be instructed by certified traffic control personnel on how to navigate a “cone zone.”
New this year, activities for road users of all ages:
Cone Zone Bike Circuit: A mini track will be set up for small children and participants unable to ride the go karts (outside the size and age restriction). They will learn more about bike safety and cone zones.
Cone Zone Selfie Station: Participants in the “selfie station” will have a chance to win a Samsung Galaxy Tablet.
Distracted Driving Graffiti Artist Competition: Throughout the weekend Graffiti artists will be at the event participating in a graffiti competition. The purpose is to create art that speaks to distracted driving. The winning artist will receive a $500 prize.
Distracted Driving Art: Children will have an opportunity to place their hand prints on large cell phone cut outs which surround a wrecked vehicle. The goal is to increase awareness of the prevention of distracted driving.
Cone Zone Distracted Driving Simulator: Adults and youth are invited to drive through a simulated Cone Zone environment.
This feature at the rodeo is in support of the Cone Zone Campaign, a road safety initiative that encourages drivers to take care when driving near roadside workers.
