This follows on the heels of the Safe Kids Buckle Up program reaching a very important milestone: one million child passenger safety seats inspected since the beginning of the program! What an awesome program! Join Rod Gillum (GM Vice President, Corporate Responsibility and Diversity) and experts from Safe Kids to learn more about Safe Kids Buckle Up and how to ensure your child is safe on every trip, along with Safe Kids' Spot the Tot initiative and other programs designed to help keep children safe in and around vehicles.
