Drive to Stay Alive is proud to announce a new partnership in 2019 with Westland Insurance, and Intact Insurance Company to bring an important safety message to youth across Western Canada. Distracted driving is the number one cause of vehicle collisions among Canadian youth. This partnership will combat that statistic by bringing the safe driving message of Drive to Stay Alive to high schools across Alberta.

“I am very excited about our new partnership with Westland Insurance Brokers and Intact Insurance. I put a high value on working with like-minded and community focused companies, and I couldn’t be more pleased about this partnership. With already having a relationship with Intact for the last three years, we plan to hit the ground running in 2019.” – Parker Thompson, DTSA Founder

The ten event partnership commenced on Tuesday January 8, 2019 when race car driver and Drive to Stay Alive founder, Parker Thompson, presented to Hilltop High School in Whitecourt, Alberta. The presentation leverages Parker’s unique experience behind the wheel to engage young drivers about the dangers of distracted driving.

“Drivers, passengers, road users all need to be able to feel safe. Our collaboration with Drive to Stay Alive educates Albertans on the dangers of distracted driving, which we hope will contribute to reducing the number of distracted driving incidents in Alberta.” – Farid Virji, Regional Vice President, Southern Alberta, Intact Insurance

“Westland Insurance (formerly All Service Insurance Services) is pleased to support Parker and Drive to Stay Alive for 2019. We value the impact that this powerful presentation has in the communities Parker visits and look forward to our partnership this year.” – Westland Insurance Group Ltd.
