Ride Safe From The Start

An online education program, in English or Spanish, for first-time expectant parents. Seats inspected in the pilot program had fewer usage errors than a control group. Includes crash footage to emphasize risks, how to choose and use a safety seat for baby, how to buckle up when pregnant, in-car safety belt exercise, and basic information for older children. Program has 11 modules with short tests; 85% success required to proceed. To engage parents-to-be, who may not realize that there is any need to learn about using a safety seat in advance, participating agencies are advised to “assign” families to use program during 6th-8th months. May be completed in several sittings. To license for use by your agency: $50/annual fee plus $50 renewable advance payment to cover $1 fee for each user-family. Call (310) 222-6860 or e-mail Stephanie Tombrello for more information.
