SafeDrive has been an annual project for over 15 years.Our club produces the SafeDrive Map to alert citizens, especially newcomers and student drivers, about the most dangerous roads and intersections in the Thomasville/Thomas County region.Using accident data provided by the Georgia DOT and local Thomasville Police Department, the SafeDrive Map is updated about every 3 years.The 6th Edition debuted in January 2017.
The SafeDrive Map is offered in both hardcopy and digital form to make it optimally attractive and relevant to both teens and their parents.The digital SafeDrive Map uses Google Maps™ to provide a self-directed virtual “tour” of the 14 flagged locations. Users view one flagged map location at a time and, when they click on that location, they are taken to a page that shows the location on an actual map segment along with written information that describes the danger. The map is accessible online via any smartphone at Safe Drive Map by QR code, or on Facebook.
The SafeDrive Map is widely distributed free of charge throughout the community… including all area schools with help from the six Interact Clubs associated with our Club, all area auto insurance companies, the Georgia State Patrol Drivers' and Examination office, and others. The Rotary Club of Thomasville is the sole sponsor of SafeDrive, branding Rotary as a leader in driver safety for the community.
