We are a traveling family and like many families, car safety is something we are very passionate about. But accidents can happen anywhere! We have made our children aware that car crashes can happen on bikes, as pedestrians even as a bus passenger. Because of this, we have included practical tips as part of our back to school preparation. Any valuable tip can help save my children from serious injury or even death. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration offers valuable tips and resources at a new, fun and informative website which offers games, videos and coloring pages which teaches child transportation safety.
For parents, Chuggington and the NHTSA offers lessons geared towards preschool to 1st grade that focus in four main areas: bike, pedestrians,bus and car seat safety. The Spanish language service program will keep young children engaged while learning valuable tips. You can use these tips along with their motto: ¡Piensa seguro, viaja seguro, mantente seguro! which means “Think Safe, Be Safe, Ride Safe.”
For kids, their favorite Chuggington characters: Chuggington, Wilson, KoKo and Brewster are ready to get roaring as they take you on a fun journey. My son loved the videos but he also enjoyed the Chuggington Safety Game where he earned badges for making the correct safety procedure. Also, we were able to download various coloring pages and puzzled at home. These coloring pages are perfect for your next road trip with the family.

How does your child (if old enough) get to school? Do they ride their bike, walk, car rider or use bus transportation?
