Waikato Students Against Driving Drunk, (SADD) found they had a new set of wheels to help them deliver their concept when a SADD car was launched at a regional conference today.
About 50 students from around the Waikato attended the two-day Regional SADD Conference, which finished with the SADD Car launch.
The conference aimed to help encourage teenagers to participate in SADD activities and to develop the concept in schools.
Regional road safety co-ordinators worked with Public Health promoters from Community Health to find a car appropriate to promote the SADD concept. Sponsored by Fairview Motors and Ecolab, the a bright yellow Ford Festiva was sign-written with the Waikato SADD brand to be used for SADD activities and events at secondary schools throughout the Region.
After about six months a Waikato SADD student would have the opportunity to win the vehicle.
Organisers hope to encourage more Waikato youth to become involved with SADD and the car launch was a key event for the year, motivating students to adopt the SADD concept in their schools.
