The 2011 Roadeo competition was conducted as follows:

  1. Students took a 100 question test based on the DMV handbook and the Drive Right textbook. The test  counted as 100 points.
  2. Students performed seven (7) driving maneuvers that included
    1. Right and left turns - 50 points
    2. Right side road turn around - 50 points
    3. Serpentine, both forward and backward - 150 points
    4. Offset - 100 points
    5. Front and rear bumper stops - 100 points
    6. Front and Rear Wheel Position Target Practice - 125 points
    7. Diminishing clearance/stop line - 100 points
  3. Each participant was assigned a JDS instructor to serve as mentor/coach.  The instructor worked with each student to prepare for the different phases of  the Roadeo. We also encouraged each participant's parent/guardian to work with them in preparing for the Roadeo.
  4. There were 10 place winners.  The prizes are savings bonds in the following amounts:
    1. 1st - $1,000.00
    2. 2nd -     900.00
    3. 3rd -      800.00
    4. 4th -      700.00
    5. 5th -      600.00

    7. 7th -      400.00
    8. 8th -      300.00
    9. 9th -      200.00
    10. 10th -    100.00
  5. A rotating team trophy was awarded to the school team accumulating the highest point total.  We took the cumulative score of  three pre-selected students from each school to determine the team champion for the year.  A school must have at least three participants to be eligible for the team trophy.
  6. The Roadeo began promptly at 9:00am.  Participants arrived at the school parking lot by 8:30am to go through an orientation and walk-through of the maneuvers.
  7. We invited the parents of all participants to the Roadeo.  We had additional events and activities at the Roadeo.  At the conclusion of the Roadeo, winners were announced, but final scores and place positions are subject to audit.

 

Interested participants next year should see the DE Site Coordinator at your high school or call the Driver Education Office at 980-343-6159 or Jordan Driving School at 704-566-9900.  Each participant must fill out a registration form and information sheet.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Driver Education and Jordan Driving School, Inc. are excited about holding this countywide Roadeo.  We feel that it will be a very rewarding experience for all participants as well as all others in attendance.  It is always a positive experience for students to display their driving skills and knowledge. Read on to see the results of previous year's events.
