Safe

Goodyear supports programs that promote safe mobility to help make our communities stronger.

Our commitment to safe mobility is inherent in every one of our tires and in the initiatives we support, such as the proper installation and use of child passenger safety seats, bicycle helmet distribution and education, and distracted driving programs for teens.

Safe Way to School

In 2017, we continued to support the Safe Way to School Campaign for incoming first graders in Debica, Poland. This program, now in its sixth year, teaches children the principles of safe road behavior that they can use on their way to and from school. The students receive safety triangles and reflective vests, as well as coloring books that reinforce safe behaviors. As part of this initiative, Goodyear provides financial support and medical equipment to support first aid training among secondary school students.

Safer Roads, Safer You

In India, we support the Safer and Convenient Taxi Operations’ “Safer Roads, Safer You” program. The two-day event, held in March 2017, brought together key government and automotive personnel to develop a code of practice to improve driver and passenger safety throughout the country's taxi operations. Now in its third year, the program, has reached nearly 7,500 drivers through 400 workshops.

Goodyear Volunteer helping child ride bike safely.

The Goodyear Foundation collaborates with Akron Children’s Hospital on the Safe Mobility Project. In 2017, more than 1,200 children in the Akron, Ohio, area received bicycle helmets and education about bicycle safety, and nearly 850 child passenger safety seats were provided to families who needed them. In addition, 120 Goodyear associates volunteered for the program at a series of community events.
