Full Video Transcript

The Problem

Since 2000, an average of approximately 1,900 children ages 14 and under are killed as occupants in motor vehicles and more than 227,000 are injured. Unfortunately, this is most often attributed to the improper, or lack of, child restraint use. About half of all children under the age of five who died in crashes were not buckled up.

Our Goal

It is the mission of the St. Johns County Tax Collector’s Office through Project Buckle Up to educate and assist parents and caregivers of St. Johns County with the proper installation and use of child passenger safety restraints and promote vehicle passenger safety.

How We Can Help

Nationally-certified Child Passenger Safety technicians are available by appointment to assist parents and caregivers with the inspection and installation of child safety seats. Project Buckle Up will show you how to properly install your child safety seat at no cost to you. For qualifying St. Johns County residents, child safety seats are available at a discounted rate.
