PROTECTING OUR OWN. COMMUNITY CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY PROGRAMS
This publication shows how everyone from health professionals, teachers, and civic leaders to parents can demonstrate their awareness of the need for child safety protection in automobiles. As child passenger safety advocates, each has to make sure that parents and other drivers understand the requirements of laws dealing with child restraints, each must emphasize the importance of using car safety seats whether required by law or not, and each must encourage the development of the habit of buckling up. The manual presents this information in the following chapters: (1) Selling safety--community program ideas; (2) how to design a child passenger safety program for your community; (3) success stories; (4) how to protect children: what child passenger safety advocates need to know; and (Appendixes) additional sources of information.
