Toyota has begun a new buckle-up program that will hopefully educate minorities on the importance of buckling up children and also adults in cars at all times.
A study carried out by the University of Michigan has recently indicated that minorities are 10 times more likely to leave their children unrestrained in vehicles than that of caucasian parents. According to the researchers, authorities must do something about it before more accidents occur.
To address this problem, Toyota has decided to bring safety advocates and technicians to three mainly African American and three Hispanic churches to educate members on the importance of car safety features.
