What is Mobile Safety Street?

Mobile Safety Street is an interactive education curriculum designed to teach school-aged children about street, home, pedestrian and passenger safety through a vehicle that travels throughout Central Massachusetts.

The vehicle exhibit consists of a custom-designed yellow school bus and safety education trailer. The interior of the bus is designed to resemble a realistic home environment, highlighting potential safety hazards such as stairs, a bathtub, windows and a stove. The exterior of the trailer opens up into a model of a street with houses, shops, a hospital, fire stations, crosswalks, traffic lights, a car backing out of a driveway, downed power lines, barking dogs and strangers
