I-Drive Road Safety Presentation Impresses St. Benedict Students

April 13, 2005 - Motivational speaker, Matt John Evans captivated over 400 St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School students with his dynamic and highly interactive, “I-Drive Road Safety “ video presentation at the school recently. A boy from “small town Parry Sound, Ontario” as Matt likes to refer to himself, gave the students 70 minutes of straight talk about the consequences of drinking and driving and risky driving behaviour. “Impaired driving is the number one killer of teenagers,” stated Evans in his opening remarks to the students. “In 2002, 193 people aged 16-24 died on Ontario’s roads, 47% were driving 34% were passengers,” remarked Evans.

The one-hour presentation which included an “I-Drive” road safety video, talked students through the comical, creative and confusing world of meeting challenges. “To deal with the issues of impaired driving we have to look at the whole issue,” stated Evans. “Drinking, Driving, Decision Making, and Solutions are all part of the package that I include in my presentation to students,” concluded Evans.

The Ministry of Transportation Road Safety Office in conjunction with
Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving (OSAID), have targeted ten
communities across Ontario to launch this new road safety video. Only
two local schools in the City of Greater Sudbury have been scheduled to receive this presentation.
