Wayne Michaud, executive director of Green Driving America, was invited by the Driver Education Program Manager of the Oregon DOT DMV Transportation Safety, and the Traffic Safety Education Program Manager of Western Oregon University to be a presenter of Smart Driving from the Start© at the Pacific Northwest Driver & Traffic Safety Virtual Conference, June, 1, 2024.

 

The approximately 80 virtual audience members were comprised of mostly Oregon driver educators along with some Washington driver educators. Wayne's goals in this presentation were to encourage driver educators to include the money savings and safe driving benefits of smart driving in their instruction, and, upon funding of a Green Driving America project in the Pacific Northwest, to consider inviting the organization to give guest-speaking virtual presentations in their classes, given by trained college level interns from Pacific Northwest colleges.
