Ever thought about how to incorporate Child Passenger Safety (CPS) education at an Auto Expo? Here is an example from the 2016 Cincinnati Auto Expo that could be replicated in your local area.
At our local Auto Expo we were looking for ways in which to involve more families, specifically kids and to spread the child passenger safety message. We, in partnership with our local Automobile Dealers Association, created a “Passport to Safety” for kids and families to complete while they spent time at the Auto Expo. There are 6 questions located throughout the show that all relate to CPS. The children write down their answers on their passport and once completed, return it to our booth to get a prize for answering all of the questions correctly. It’s a great way for them (and their parents) to learn about CPS and to get them excited about the event. Additionally, we have the children complete a pledge to always buckle up in the car by writing their name on a die-cut car and then placing it on the wall behind us.
