Keeping Kids Safe

AAA and Busytown Bring You Child Passenger Safety

Dedicated to developing, implementing and supporting driver and traffic safety programs for motorists, pedestrians, cyclists and children since its founding in 1902, AAA has been an advocate for safety for decades. One of the many messages AAA delivers is a focus on child passenger safety.

In recognition of National Child Passenger Safety Week, Sept. 19-25, AAA has joined forces with the timeless characters from the Busytown book series by author Richard Scarry—one of the best-selling children's authors of all time—to promote child passenger safety. Scarry's most famous series, Busytown has sold over 100 million copies and has been translated into 30 languages.

Richard Scarry's Busytown

Child passenger safety is a very important message to get across. Each year, there are countless child accidents and deaths in the U.S. due to car crashes. AAA and your children's friends at Busytown are committed to stressing the importance of safety in the vehicle because, sadly, car accidents remain the leading cause of death among children in the U.S. Fortunately, research shows that many of these deaths are preventable.
