Driver & Passenger Safety
The best way to keep drivers and passengers safe is through the use of seat belts
and child safety seats. We've implemented several projects to emphasize the importance
of buckling up every time you're in a moving vehicle.
Child passenger safety curriculum:
Our Buckle Up With
Bucky materials offer teachers and parents an easy and fun way to communicate
with children about seat belt safety. We developed a collection of materials that
focus on the who, what, when, where and how of seat belt safety. The materials include
a video, storybook, CD and growth chart. A presenter's guide is also available for
those who want to share the information with a group.
We provide a local emphasis on national seat belt campaigns such as "Click It or
Rollover Simulation Demonstrations
School seat belt project:
This project works with local junior and senior high schools to place a semester-long
focus on seat belt safety. We conduct observational surveys to determine the percentage
of students who buckle up; then we try to increase that percentage through the use
of education and incentives.
Work site seat belt project:
We work with local businesses to emphasize the importance of seat belts to their
employees . We use education and incentives to increase the number of these adults
who buckle up.
