Anne Marie Hayes was recognized for her creativity and longstanding commitment to road safety during the 32nd annual Brampton Safe City Awards held recently.
Anne Marie pioneered the Sweet Life Road Show – an interactive day of road safety programming for high school students. The Sweet Life Road Show travels from school to school and targets the top 10 road safety risks in a high-energy, hands-on manner. She has been able to engage students, safety professionals, educators and sponsors to provide this highly educational and lifesaving day free of charge to schools.
In the spring of 2014, Anne Marie Hayes brought Sweet Life Road Show to St Augustine Secondary School in Brampton where hundreds of high school students took part in her innovative event.
Anne Marie is a true road safety champion. She serves on the Board of Directors for National Organizations for Youth Safety (NOYS) in Washington, DC and is a member of 7 international road safety organizations. Her goal is to have road safety education become an integral part of every Ontario high school’s curriculum.
