To help combat this problem, the city of Roanoke will be hosting an upcoming safety event focusing on educating the public about the importance of highway safety. The Rally for Road Safety will take place beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 17, at the Tanglewood Mall parking lot.
During the event, Virginia Tech affiliates will be demonstrate the latest in vehicle and pedestrian safety technology.
