Manteca High College Prep Club promoting safe driving campaign

The Manteca High College Prep Club is once again taking part in the Allstate / Safety Center’s Safe Driving Campaign.
This year’s slogan for the month-long campaign that runs through April 13 is: Honor the Code, Be Safe on the Road.
MHS students will be issuing warnings on the dangers of distracted driving — this is in wake of the recent related incident at August Knodt Elementary School, according to advisor Mary Ann Tolbert — going to the MHS feeder school sites on Friday, cautioning parents to drive carefully around the campus as well as giving stickers to youngsters who safely cross the road using crosswalks.
A year ago, MHS students received $1,000 from this competition. They donated the money back to the school for the Honor the Code program.
Members of the College Prep Club wanted to make sure that everyone at the school benefited from these funds.
The campaign will kick off Shamrock pledges to avoid distracted driving.
Students will be warned about the dangers of “drowsy driving” prior to finals via phone calls to home and flyers left on car windshields.
Much like last year, students at MHS will again have a chance to experience distracted driving via “drunk” goggles and a driving simulator during the lunch activities.
