UHP Kicks Off Adopt-A-High School Program with a Sweet Treat for Seat Belted Skyhawks
At Salem Hills High School, Troopers handed out Creamies to teens who were buckled up.
With students headed back to school and getting behind the wheel, the Utah Highway Patrol (UHP) has launched its Adopt-A-High School program for the new school year. This means UHP Troopers are back on campus reminding teens about the importance of always buckling up.
UHP kicked off the program at Salem Hills High School, where Troopers put away their citation books and instead rewarded students with Creamies for each teen who was buckled up on Tuesday, September 10th. The teens were surprised with a sweet treat as they drove off campus. The Creamies Company donated their signature ice cream treat for Troopers to hand out during the Adopt-A-High School event.
UHP’s ADOPT A HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM: High schools across the state are adopted by Utah Highway Patrol Troopers to educate youth about the importance of safe driving. Troopers visit the school monthly with planned activities, not only for the students, but the faculty and public. They conduct three observational seat belt surveys – fall, winter & spring – to develop a baseline and show progress made in seat belt use.
So far this year, the UHP has officially adopted 14 high schools throughout the state.
