Minister Carlisle to Join "Child Safety in a Vehicle" Campaign to Collect Used Car Seats
On 23 October 2012, Robin Carlisle, Minister of Transport and Public Works will join the Drive More Safely team, led by Ms Alida Jones, at SACS Junior School.
The "Child Safety in a Vehicle" campaign allows parents to donate used car seats to the non-profit organisation who refurbishes them and makes them available to parents who cannot afford them.
Research shows that children of lower income families are five times more likely to be killed in a car crash than those of higher income families. To date, Drive More Safely has given out more than 600 seats since its launch in February 2012.
The campaign is running until Thursday at participating schools.
