Saturday, May 16 from 10:00AM – 3:00PM beside Firestone in the Tanglewood Mall parking lot, this FREE and fun community event will educate young and old alike on road safety laws and protect users of the road! Roanoke County P, R & T, RIDE Solutions, YOVASO, local law enforcement, and other members of the Blue Ridge Transportation Safety Board have partnered together and invite the community to come out for a day filled with informational fun!
For the first time at Rally for Road Safety, DMV2GO, the wireless office on wheels with the latest technology, will be available offering Department of Motor Vehicle services. Apply for or renew your ID card or driver’s license, apply for Virginia birth certificates, obtain E-Z Pass Transponders, purchase hunting and fishing licenses and temporary boat registrations at the DMV on wheels. Most services that are normally available for citizens at the local DMV office will be available at Rally for Road Safety!
