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.

Drive to Save Lives

U R The Key: Drive to Save Lives tour at area high schools

Jacksonville and St Augustine – Cara Filler presented her Drive To Save Lives to many of our local high school students. Cara’s identical twin sister was killed in a crash while driving with her boyfriend, who was speeding and showboating. Cara uses her personal tragedy to educate teens in a positive and “doesn’t feel like learning” way on how to be a safe passenger, how to get out of driving with an impaired or dangerous driver, and how to take personal charge of your own safety.

“Your life. Your choice.”

Car crashes continue to be the number one cause of death for our teens. Having this amazing, national speaker available to our schools for free to discuss the importance of teen traffic safety was priceless. Special thanks go out to Florida SADD with grants from State Farm and the Florida Teen Safe Driving Coalition for making these life-saving presentations happen at eight of our schools.

Our Community Traffic Safety Team and other educational outreach of groups like SADD and the Teen Safe Driving Coalition continue to do all that we can to drive down teen deaths on our roadways. Our community leaders and partners help ensure teen drivers are provided with the information, motivation and tools that will keep them safe on the road.

Cara is a natural speaker, engaging and memorable. This powerful tour will not be forgotten by the students. The video, recorded and produced by Favorite Studios, is only a highlight of the full presentation which lasted about an hour. There was such an enthusiastic response from students and faculty, we can hope to see more of these teen safety events in the future.
