Royal Palm Beach High School students Maya Williams, Marissa Premsukh, April Kho and Adecia Harrison attended a program by the Teen Safe Driving Coalition and then worked together with RPBHS’s SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) Chapter to bring blinking lights to local elementary schools.
The students worked together to pass out blinking lights that can be attached to bicycles and backpacks to students at Royal Palm Beach, H.L. Johnson and Cypress Trails elementary schools on Monday, May 16, with the help of supportive sponsors like Murray & Guari Trial Attorneys P.L.
The project is important to Williams, who recalls biking and walking to school early in the morning or late in the afternoon when it would often be dark outside. Giving elementary school students the blinkers helps make the children easier to see in the dark.
