  • Be a good role model. Always buckle up in the car, always wear a helmet when biking, and always follow pedestrian safety rules.
  • Supervise young children as they are walking, biking or skating.
  • Provide your children with bright clothing so motorists can easily see them.
  • Make sure that your child is properly buckled up in the appropriate child safety seat and in the back seat.  Safety experts advise that all children under the age of 12 should ride in the back seat.
  • Make sure that your teen driver understands and obeys all state traffic laws.
