Safety Street at the County Fair
Our Drive to Zero Traffic Safety Commission, Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, Clackamas 9-1-1 and Disaster Preparedness provide safety education each year at the Clackamas County Fair. Our transportation safety booth provides education related to traffic safety and we distribute traffic safety-related items such as safety reflectors. In addition, Safety Street provides children with the opportunity to practice being safe in cars with crossing signs, speed limits and traffic to pay attention to while driving.
We offer transportation safety presentations to schools and drivers education classes to illustrate traffic safety and the responsibility we all have to each other. Presentations cover safe driving topics including seat belt use, distracted driving, speed, impairment and general driving tips.
To request a presentation at your school, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Request a neighborhood sign
We offer Slow Down, This is Our Neighborhood signs to the public to remind drivers to be responsible and courteous. The signs can be easily staked in your yard near the roadway.
Signs are free, but we may have to limit the number for individuals and neighborhoods. To request a sign for your yard, contact email@example.com.
Take the safe driver pledge
We are all in this together. One crash prevented can save lives. Drive to Zero asks you to take the safety pledge.
