Safe Kids at the National Truck Driving Championships
During the 2009 National Truck Driving Championships, children, spouses and friends don’t have to sit behind the wheel of a big rig to display their road safety expertise. FedEx and Safe Kids teamed up to bring an interactive safety game to the NTDC, which is being held this week in Pittsburgh. While 98 FedEx drivers competed, the game tested attendees’ knowledge of pedestrian safety, as well as challenging their aim. Those with a good knowledge of safety and a strong throwing arm were rewarded with reflective safety gear and other prizes. The Safe Kids PHOTOVOICE exhibit also is on display for NTDC attendees to enjoy and learn more about children’s perspectives on pedestrian safety from countries around the world.
Together with Safe Kids Worldwide, FedEx established the Safe Kids Walk This Way program to teach safe behaviors to motorists and child pedestrians and create safer, more walkable communities. Safe Kids Walk This Way is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.
