OPERATION SAVE A LIFE DIRECTOR'S REPORT
Look at the calendar… November….there are leaves on the ground and we will soon be looking at frost and snow. Riding season is pretty much behind us at this point.
While the weather has changed and gotten cooler, OSAL classes have been heating up. Peggy Snyder and her group in Blair County have been busy and Mason-Dixon has been just as busy.
By the time you read this edition of Between the Lines, we will have added the new rainy day and passenger movement videos to the PowerPoint. The new video from PennDot has already been added and the reviews have been good. Remember, these are all tools for all of you to use in your classes. Adapt them to your class times and to get the message of sharing the roads with us.
I am not sure how many of you are aware that there is also a video available on the state web site to take with you to present to the schools or civic organizations explaining what our program is about. If your chapter is interested in getting the OSAL program up and running, feel free to reach out to Adam Gill, Mike Bretzman or myself. We will do what we can for you and give you tips to get started.
Distracted driving, especially cell phone use is one of our biggest enemies. Emphasis on this hazard is extremely important to the OSAL program. Daniels Law and its consequences are something that the students need to know about.
Use of turn signals, blind spots, tailgating and left turns are also talking points in classes. Find ways to get the students involved in the discussion and listen to their input and questions.
A huge thank you to the Academy For Media Production, Bill Chaenaille and his staff for creating the latest tool for the OSAL Program. They did an awesome job for the rainy day and passenger movement videos. And special thanks to Mason-Dixon and Blue Mountain Chapter for their help. Matt, Paige, and Lesli.
That’s about it for this month. Happy Thanksgiving to one and all. And remember “Look Twice, Save a Life”
