Occupant Protection

Seat belt usage remains the most effective way to reduce injuries and fatalities from crashes on our roadways. The Northeast Florida Community Traffic Safety Team continues to promote occupant protection and buckling up as not just a safety tool, but as a safe lifestyle.

New 2020 Buckle Up Campaign Graphics

Three new 11×17 “buckle up” poster designs.

With several recent fatalities involving passengers that were not wearing their seat belts in Northeast Florida, we feel it’s even more imperative to continue to promote strong occupant protection messaging. This basic reminder to always buckle up for every car ride is carried through in all three design themes:

Three new 2’x5′ “buckle up” banner designs.

Help make buckling up more than a trend or necessity because “It’s the law.” Share these occupant protection social media graphics and together we can make wearing seat belts a way of life for everyone.
