Earned Media Materials
NHTSA has prepared earned media messaging and templates for our safety partners and advocates use when planning their [teen seat belt use] safety campaigns.

NHTSA’s bold advertising messages are not intended to speak to responsible, law-abiding parents who are already doing the right thing. NHTSA’s messages are targeted to those parents who, for some reason, aren't worried about their teenagers driving or riding in vehicles unbuckled.
