Photo TR: Safety Seat Awareness Day

Postby printersdevil78 » Sat Mar 15, 2008 3:28 pm

So what happens when you get a bunch of law enforcement officers, health department officials and Jaycees together at a car dealership on Maryland's Eastern Shore? Why, they host Safety Seat Awareness Day, of course!

This was our (the local Jaycees) first time attempting this event, and it was a smashing success. Based on the number of Easter baskets we handed out, we were able to check about 60 vehicles for proper safety seat installation and give away a number of free child safety seats to replace those that had been recalled (usually without the parents' knowledge).

As theme park season hasn't quite reached my corner of the nation yet, I thought I'd share a few scenes from today's festivities. As with similar event TR's I've posted in the past, I tried to eliminate the photos where kids' faces could be clearly seen, so you won't see too many children in this series. But trust me, the place was swarming with them for four hours today!

This wasn't so much to warn drivers to be careful as to let them know they had officially entered the Cootie Zone.
Checking the Safety Seat.JPG
This is what it was all about. A sheriff's deputy checked our first safety seat of the day.
The Convincer.JPG
The Maryland State Police brought this contraption, which simulated a 15-20 mph car crash. They called it "The Convincer," as in "I'll bet this convinces you to wear your seat belt!"

As president of the Jaycees, of course, I had to lead by example and take a spin on The Convincer. It was jarring, and I walked off with a little bit of a headache. I think it was made by Vekoma.

Because mascots in crash test simulators are always funny.

The local fire department brought its mascot-crotch-sniffing fire dog out to play.
We got proclamations from the city and county...

And finally, I'm embarrassed to say my little sister thought of and executed this photo. (She's 26, but still....)

Jeff Johnson counts "The Convincer" as a credit.
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!
Original enough to not steal someone else's quote as a signature
