Prevent Automobile Collisions Everyday (PACE) Yourself is a program sponsored by the Boulder City Police Department, Nevada Department of Public Safety, Office of Traffic Safety, UNLV’s Safe Community’s Partnership, Drivers Edge, and other law enforcement agencies throughout the State of Nevada.
|PACE Yourself challenges young high school drivers to utilize their innovation and creativity to come up with their own traffic safety message. Once the public service announcements have been created, they are judged, and the writers of the winning submissions win an all expense paid trip to Disneyland.
|Boulder City High School Students, working with Officer Alan Nutzman as their advisor, created a team entitled Red Light Green Light. Team Captain Randy Salinas, along with Team Members Jami Goudy, Carrie Humphries, Tommy Parks and Morgan Helm, went to work brainstorming ideas relevant to young drivers today. The theme for their submission was Don’t Text, You Could Be Next.

|A short public service announcement was created which quickly displays the dangers involved with sending and receiving text messages while driving. Within a few seconds this outstanding group of young adults was able to transfer the seriousness of texting as a distraction to drivers. Fast paced, informative and impactful are a few words that sum up their work. Red Light Green Light placed second in the State of Nevada and won a trip to Disneyland.
You can view the PSA at the Boulder City “on Demand” section of the City of Boulder City Website www.bcnv.org.
Congratulations to the Team and Officer Nutzman for all of their hard work and second place finish. You represented Boulder City honorably.
Until next month, stay safe.
