Fort Myers car accident attorneyThrough the Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Belt Partnership's annual "Be Ready. Be Buckled." art contest, kids can help Port Charlotte drivers remember to always wear their seatbelt.  The annual contest is open to children with a relative or sponsor in the truck and bus industries in grades K-6 (ages 5-12) and aims to urge truck, bus and all drivers to buckle up to saves lives and reduce injuries.

As Port Charlotte injury attorneys, we know that seat belts save lives every day. Therefore, we encourage parents to share the contest with their children. This year’s contest runs through Friday, March 1, 2013.

Artwork that best illustrates “the importance of commercial motor vehicle drivers buckling up” with the overarching message “Safety Belts Save Lives” will win the grand prizes in each of the two age categories. When preparing their entries, children are encouraged to address these questions:

  • Why is it important to buckle up every time while driving a truck, bus, or other large vehicle?
  • How does the motto “Safety Belts Save Lives” apply to bus and truck drivers?
  • What does it mean to you for truck and bus drivers to buckle up while on the job?
  • What would happen if a truck or bus driver did not buckle up while on the job?

Additional details about the contest can be found here.
