Student Training in Occupant Protection “STOP” Program
Region 6 ESC, in cooperation with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), will provide classroom workshops to youth, adults and caregivers in the service area regarding the importance of proper use of safety restraints in vehicles. These workshops will be presented by certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians (CPST) and specialists with knowledge in occupant protection. Proper use of safety belts and child safety restraints will be discussed and hands-on activities will be used to demonstrate their importance. The CPSTs will also provide Child Safety Seat Check-Up Events for classroom workshop locations upon request. At the Check-Up Event, participants will receive one-on-one, hands-on instruction from a CPST on the proper safety restraint for their child(ren) and how to properly install the safety restraint(s) in their vehicle.
