Consent Form for Minors Aged 15 to 17 Years Oklahoma Adopt-A-Highway Program
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation's Adopt-A-Highway program is a part of an effort to make our roadways litter-free. The program is voluntary, designed for non-profit organizations who desire to participate in their community. Each volunteer group assumes the responsibility for an assigned section of highway and agrees to remove litter a minimum of four times a year, for a two year period. Actual work sessions will be scheduled and monitored by the adult(s) of the sponsoring group. Although the Department of Transportation will evaluate any given section of highway for appropriateness for the Adopt-A-Highway program, and will provide ANSI certified safety vests and safety brochures, the Department cannot guarantee the safety of participants.
