A Message For Parents

The Minnesota Safety Council is a private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to preventing unintentional injuries ("accidents") through education. The goal of this website is to educate children about the importance of buckling up properly and to inform parents of the risks to children when they are not restrained or are improperly restrained in motor vehicles.

We care about the safety of children and the biggest risk to our children is traffic-related injuries. This website provides fun activities for kids that deliver important messages about being properly buckled up. It also provides information to help adults in choosing the safest way to buckle children in vehicles. Please note that we do not seek any personally-identifying information from children (see our privacy policy).

Creation of the Snappy Safari website was funded by a grant from the American Public Health Association, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the American Medical Association. It was developed by the Minnesota Safety Council in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, Office of Traffic Safety, the Minnesota Medical Association, Safe Kids Minnesota and the Minnesota Public Health Association.
