Calling all teens - share your safe driving tips for a chance to win
Oct. 19-25 is National Teen Driver Safety Week
Oct. 9, 2015
SGI is holding a contest for teen drivers in Saskatchewan with six $250 VISA gift cards up for grabs, in support of National Teen Driver Safety Week, which runs from Oct. 19-25, 2015.
Teens aged 15-19 are invited to share their safe driving tips focusing on impaired driving, distracted driving, speeding or wearing a seatbelt.
“Teen drivers have higher fatality, injury and collision rates than drivers in other age ranges,” said Earl Cameron, Vice President of the Auto Fund. “It’s heartbreaking to think of a young life being cut short because he or she made the decision to drink and drive, or couldn’t wait to send a text. Don’t be part of this problem - be part of the solution. You can start by sharing your safe driving tip with SGI and then practising what you preach, during National Teen Driver Safety Week and every time you’re behind the wheel.”
In 2014, 15 teens were killed and 743 were injured in traffic collisions in Saskatchewan1.
Teens can enter the contest by sharing their safe driving tips using the #WeCanDriveBetter hashtag on SGI's Facebook page timeline, on Twitter mentioning @SGItweets, or on Instagram mentioning @sgiphotos. Remember - be creative, but drive safely! No photos/tweets, etc., while driving. Those entries will be disqualified.
VISA gift card winners will be determined by a random draw of all eligible entries, with the draw made on Oct. 27, 2015. Contest submissions will be shared on SGI’s social media accounts throughout National Teen Driver Safety Week.
