Safety First

Protect Yourself and Your Loved Ones


Buckle Up. Every Trip. Every Time. All passengers must agree to wear their seat belts every time they are riding in your vehicle. Set the example by always wearing your seat belt.

Protect the Children


When traveling with children, take every precaution to keep them safe.

  • All children under 13 should ride in the back seat.
  • Make sure car seats and booster seats are properly installed and that any children riding with you are in the correct car seat, booster seat, or seat belt that is appropriate for their size. All passengers in your vehicle should be buckled up on every trip, every time.
  • Click on NHTSA’s child passenger safety recommendations to find out how to select the right seat for your child’s age and size. Learn more and find a free car seat inspection site near you.
  • Never leave your child unattended in or around a vehicle.
  • Always remember to lock your vehicle when exiting so children do not play or get trapped inside.
