Passenger Safety

Nearly 80% of children aged 0 to 4 years killed or injured in traffic-related crashes (PDF 253kb) are passengers. Babies need protection as passengers even before birth. During pregnancy, protect both yourself and your baby by wearing an approved and correctly fitted seatbelt. After birth, the first trip that many children make as passengers is when they are brought home as babies. Keep young children safe as passengers on their first and every trip.

The Kids and Traffic team contributed to a passenger safety song, “Click-clack”, on the ABC album, “Let’s Go Play: Happy, Healthy Kids”.  Why not come along to Kids and Traffic workshops for more learning and teaching ideas using this and other road safety songs!  … and share this ‘Buckle up for safety’ booklet with families.
