Rural roadway safety videos

IMG_0452 (Web)

Farm Safety For Just Kids got some help from the Audubon (Iowa) FFA chapter earlier this month. These high school students reviewed four different rural roadway safety demonstrations, and let us film them presenting the various topics. The videos were uploaded to YouTube and are a part of the new rural roadway safety packet of resources expected to be available later this year.

The presentations included:
1. Size matters: The difference between a farm implement and a passenger vehicle in an accident
2. Seat belt safety: The dangers of not buckling up
3. Road surfaces: Various rural roadways impacted by the weather cause different driving conditions
4. Attitude impacts behavior: Watch as 8th graders participate in an attitude continuum about road safety statements

The short videos are perfect to show in class or at a farm safety event. Teachers can also use the videos to get demonstration ideas for your class and lesson plans.

Look for even more rural roadway safety resources on our website later this year!
