Explore the most recent traffic safety research, programs and recommendations for children 8- to 12-years-old, the age range marketers have dubbed the “tween” years. Potentially too big for booster seats but not ready for the front seat, these children are at an in-between but impressionable age. It is a time of opportunity, a chance to establish safe habits as the more dangerous and independent teen years approach.
This web site is a portal to tween-targeted traffic safety information – materials, facts, insights and recommendations specifically for 8- to 12-year-olds from a range of sources. Scour the site for what you need and reproduce whatever you want but please credit the organization that created it. You can also submit your work for others to access. And you can check regularly for news and new submissions.
This site was created by the Automotive Coalition for Traffic Safety. The coalition is providing the web site as a public service and does not necessarily endorse the information or recommendations posted by others. Please consult with the group responsible for each submission for more information or clarifications.
