Distraction-Free Driving Policy Form. Anyone transporting youth to an event outside of Church will need to fill out a Distraction-Free Driving Policy Form (Please see below:)
Distraction-free driving policy:
Traffic crashes are among the leading causes of death and injuries in Florida. Because Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church of Greater Orlando is committed to establishing and following practices that make working and traveling with our youth safer, and because we value the safety and well-being of all parishioners of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church of Greater Orlando we are instituting a Distraction-Free Driving Policy to promote safe driving habits.
Using a cell phone while driving increases the risk of a crash by four times, and texting increases crash risk by 23 times. Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church of Greater Orlando youth volunteers and chaperones must refrain from using PDAs and cell phones, either hand-held or hands-free, while operating a motor vehicle. Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church of Greater Orlando youth volunteers and chaperones must not initiate or respond to phone calls, read or respond to text messages or emails while driving a passenger or commercial vehicle with youth of Holy Trinity. Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church of Greater Orlando youth volunteers and chaperones who need to make an emergency call while on the road must first park the vehicle in a safe location.
Failure to follow Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church of Greater Orlando’s Distraction-Free Driving Policy as a volunteer or chaperone may result in immediate dismissal of privileges of volunteering and chaperoning any further Holy Trinity youth events or programs.
