Student Organization Strives for a Safe Break

Eta Sigma Gamma (ESG) of Truman State University is sponsoring SAFEBRAKE, a highway safety awareness campaign promoting safe driving, particularly during midterm break.

SAFEBRAKE will take place Feb. 26-28 and include a number of different events.

From 1-2:30 p.m. Feb. 27 outside the campus Physical Plant Sgt. Brent Bernhardt from the Missouri Highway Patrol will be running a “roll-over car simulation.” This presentation will demonstrate what happens in a real accident when the driver and passengers have chosen not to wear seat belts.

There will also be a flower memorial Feb. 27 near the Flame to the Second Century, which will be lit from 4-8 p.m. The public is invited to leave flowers to commemorate those who have been lost in car accidents.

Penny Lorenz, a motivational speaker and assistant director of THINK FIRST Missouri, will speak at 5 p.m. Feb. 27 in Magruder Hall 2001.
She will speak about her own personal experience with an automobile accident at the age of 17 and why safe driving practices are so important.

In addition, an informational table will be set up from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Feb. 26-28 in the Student Union Building.
