The MDOT came to visit Poplarville Lower Elementary students. The students learned about seatbelt safety. They also got to see the “Buckle Family” go for a simulated ride. As the truck flipped over and over, the students observed what would happen to a person if they weren’t wearing their seatbelt. They also got to observe what would happen to them if they were wearing their seatbelt. The students were encouraged to always wear their seatbelt and tell their parents to always wear theirs too!
