Howells-Dodge – Promoting Traffic Safety
The Howells-Dodge FCCLA Chapter focused on encouraging seat belt use for their Families Acting for Community Traffic Safety (FACTS) project. Our goal was to increase the use of seat belts among students in our school. On October 16, FCCLA members held a seat belt survey in the Howells-Dodge School parking lot before school from 7:40 – 8:10 a.m. Student drivers and their passengers were surveyed to find out how many were wearing their seat belts. The survey shoed that 94% of drivers were wearing seat belts and 6% were not. Among passengers, 84% wore their seat belts and 16% did not. FCCLA members passed out packaged Rice Krispie bars to each student with the message, “Don’t snap, crackle or pop you bones in an accident. Wear your seat belt.” FCCLA members then put up posters in the school encouraging seat belt use, wrote articles for the school and local newspapers and put up signs on the streets by the school reminding everyone to wear their seat belt. Following these activities, our FCCLA chapter did a second seat belt survey on Friday, November 13 in the school parking lot before school. The members found that 97.9% of student drivers were wearing their seat belt and 95.4% of passengers were using their seat belts. Each student was given a packaged Fruit Roll-Up with the message, “Don’t get rolled up in an accident. Wear your seat belt.” The chapter’s seat belt promotion activities successfully increased seat belt use among students and passengers. The chapter publicized the project in articles on the school website, in the local newspapers, in the school newspaper and on social media.
