WEST ORANGE, NJ - The Nikhil Badlani Foundation has been hard at work supporting National Youth Traffic Safety month, and on May 17 they unveiled their latest effort to protect children at the corner of Alisa Drive and Pleasant Valley Way. Specially designed reflective strips have been added to ten stop signs around West Orange High School.
The strips, which say "Drive Smart - Save a Life" the motto of the foundation, "are highly reflective both during the day and night, when they take on an illuminated appearance," said Will Varzab, a member of the Board of Directors.
"We're placing ten strips on stop signs around the high school," said Sangeeta Badlani. "Studies have shown they really help."
In addition to West Orange, South Orange and Maplewood are receiving ten each of the NBF reflective strips, funded by the foundation.
"Last week, the Foundation launched their National Youth Traffic Safety Month with a PSA advertising artwork designed by students from 3 schools on NJ Transit train stations and light rails and buses."
