Tattoos carry child safety message
Pre-school children in County Mayo (Ireland) will wear tattoos carrying a message for their parents to ‘Belt Me Up Every Time’.
Noel Gibbons, Mayo’s RSO, says that children, especially those under five, cannot be responsible for keeping themselves safe.
He said: “Children from local pre-schools and childcare centres are learning about the importance of seatbelt wearing and road safety and over the coming weeks will go home wearing tattoo’s reminding parents to buckle them up safely before they set off on their journey.
“Teachers will speak to children to help reinforce messages about the importance of seatbelt wearing, holding hands with adults and using the safety door to enter and exit vehicles.”
