Today's Message Monday - Eggs-perts in safety say buckle your bunny

04/22/2019

4-22 message mondayBunnies are cute and sweet and a common nickname for loved ones. Using “honey-bunny” adds an extra element of sweetness.

Even if you’re the best driver you know, there are others on the road who are messing with their phones, eating, speeding or just plain not paying attention. Those are the people you need to prepare for by wearing your seat belt and making sure everyone in your vehicle is properly buckled.

For the baby bunnies in your care, here’s a great tool to make sure you are using the right car seat for your child’s weight and height - https://www.safekids.org/car-seat

For 2019, there have been 77 fatalities reported. That’s an increase of nine since last Monday. The 2018 fatality count stands at 317. This is subject to change as law enforcement reports are completed.
