Buckle Up for Life Program - EVERYONE Deserves To Be Safe!
In 2004, Toyota teamed up with experts at the world-renowned Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center to create a groundbreaking injury prevention initiative called "Buckle up for Life" or "Abrochate a la Vida."
The program brings hospital safety curriculum to Hispanic and African American church congregations, and offers ways to integrate safety lessons for drivers and passengers of all ages into sermons and Sunday school classes.
It also provides free child car safety seats and car seat inspections. After participating in the Buckle Up for Life program in Greater Cincinnati, the number of Hispanic adults and children using seat belts and car seats more than doubled.
We think that everyone deserves to be safe. That's why we created "Buckle Up for Life," or "Abrochate a la Vida," to help educate communities on critical safety behaviors.
We encourage you to watch the videos on this page. The videos below offer advice in English and Spanish on the proper installation of a child car seat.
To choose the correct car seat for your child's age, weight and height and meet the requirements of the state where you live, see "Safety Information for Families."
Also, if you have a vehicle that is older than a 2002 model year, see our installation tips for seat belt systems.
Thank you for making child passenger safety a priority. Together, all of us have the ability to help keep our families safe.
