Community engagement by DalTRAC team

The DalTRAC team made an appearance at Switch Dartmouth this Sunday engaging the community and promoting road safety awareness with our “Share the Road Nova Scotia” campaign.

Despite the cloudy weather, the Switch Dartmouth event was a huge success with great support from the community.  Our team engaged with the community about road sharing issues, gave away promotional material, and gathered video tips from the community on sharing the road safely!  Keep an eye on our Youtube page as we share these community video tips!

Help us to promote our campaign and build our social media presence as we prepare to expand this pilot-project to the entirety of Nova Scotia!  Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and subscribe to us on Youtube to stay informed and engaged!

Keep Sharing the Road!

Engaging the community about sharing the road

The DalTRAC team was at MEC Bikefest on Sunday engaging the community and promoting road safety awareness with our “Share the Road Nova Scotia” campaign.  The weather was great and the community was very active and supportive. Our team gave away promotional material, engaged the community to draw what sharing the road looks like, and gathered video tips from the community on sharing the road safely!

DalTRAC will also have a “Share the Road Nova Scotia” booth at the Switch Dartmouth event next Sunday (June 15).  Help us to promote our campaign and build our social media presence as we prepare to expand this pilot-project to the entirety of Nova Scotia!  Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and subscribe to us on Youtube to stay informed and engaged!
