Keeping your most precious cargo safe

Did you know that more children die each year from road injuries, than from cancer, asthma and infectious diseases combined? Yet, with the right restraints properly fitted in the car, many of those injuries can be prevented.

That’s why the StreetSmarts team were happy to assist when Kidsafe Queensland applied for a community grant to help spread the word about the correct use of child restraints.

Kidsafe Queensland is a not-for-profit group that works hard to make the world a safer place for kids. Not only do they provide advice on car restraints, their qualified staff will even come out to install or check your child car seat for you too.

With the $54,000 grant from StreetSmarts, Kidsafe Queensland has produced a television commercial and a series of online videos to educate parents and children about child restraints and how to make sure they’re installed and fitted correctly in the car.

It’s a great initiative, and one we’re really proud to support. So make sure you check out the TV spot and the videos here and if you’d like to find out more about the project, watch our case study video.
