Would You Attend Traffic School On Twitter?

Would You Attend Traffic School On Twitter?

Traffic school isn’t traditionally the most exciting class for new drivers and those who need a refresher – but it’s a necessary part of public safety.

In order to make things more interesting, Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) moved class from a four-walled, windowless room to the virtual classroom of Twitter.

The tweets were sent live during SGI’s Graduated Driver’s Licensing Improvement program, which monitors the records of drivers in the program who have been found at-fault for a collision or who have received traffic convictions.
