SAFEBRAKE Activities to Take Place on Campus

Health science honorary fraternity Eta Sigma Gamma will sponsor a highway safety awareness campaign on Truman’s campus March 3-10.
The purpose of SAFEBRAKE is to promote safe driving among students, particularly during the upcoming midterm break.

From 1-3 p.m., March 3, the Missouri Highway Patrol will do a roll-over car simulation behind the Physical Plant. Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Brent Burnhardt will be available to answer questions and give tips for safe driving, express the importance of safe driving habits and demonstrate what happens in a crash following the simulation.

Truman’s Flame to the Second Century will be lit from 6-8 p.m., March 6, in honor of those who have lost their lives in automobile accidents. A flower memorial will be set up near the flame between March 6-10 with a sign displaying the names of Truman students who died on local highways. All Kirksville residents and members of the University community are welcome to visit the memorial.

Other SAFEBRAKE activities include a motivational speech at 6 p.m., March 6, in the Student Union Building Governors Room. Penny Bailey, assistant director of “Think First” Missouri, will speak about her personal experience with an automobile accident at the age of 17 and reasons to drive safely.

Students, faculty and staff can also gather information about safe driving at an informational table set up in the Student Union Building throughout the week.
