If you missed the opening event in Atlanta on July 9th, don’t worry, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Safe Cars Saves Lives bus tour is traveling across America’s southern states this August. The tour aims to spread awareness about the massive Takata airbag recall and inform the public about vehicle safety.
Safety topics include how to search for vehicle recalls using NHTSA’s look-up tool, how to correctly install and use child safety seats and proper tire maintenance. Rear View Safety offers a helpful system to easily check tire pressure.
The tour will also focus on ways to prevent heatstroke. On average there are 37 heatstroke fatalities in the US ever year. Children and pets left in vehicles are most at risk. Rear View Safety has recently designed a reminder system to never forget any precious cargo. Read more about The Brilliant Backseat Reminder System here.
NHTSA Safety partners Safe Kids, The Rubber Manufactures Association, and AAA will also attend select tour stops.
