Buckle-Up or You’ll Be Back! Campaign Launched at Red Cross Children's Hospital

22 November 2012

Childsafe South Africa, in collaboration with Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital, will launch the 'Buckle-up or you’ll be back!' campaign on 22 November 2012 to raise awareness around the dangers of not buckling-up when driving, particularly for children in the vehicle.

Hospital security guards will be checking all cars leaving the premises to ensure that all drivers, passengers and children are appropriately strapped in. Vehicles in which children are not appropriately restrained will be issued with "Red Tickets" giving car safety advice.

In support of this campaign, Minister Carlisle will speak on road safety issues and the importance of restraints, particularly for children.
