traffic safety messages offered
The Oklahoma Highway Safety office is reaching out to faith-based organizations across the state in order to spread traffic safety information to churches and other community groups. As part of that cooperative effort, the office is promoting a variety of online faith-based materials provided by Region 6 of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
These items include weekly church bulletin announcements, pastor notes, safety reminders and Sunday school activities, with most materials available in both English and Spanish.
“We recognize the important work done in our state by faith-based groups,” Garry Thomas, the highway safety office's director, said. “These online materials will provide churches and other organizations with a variety of ideas to help keep families safe on our roads.”
Items are updated quarterly and may be viewed and downloaded at www.coremessages.com/latestdownloads.html.
