Safe

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

PROMOTING SAFE MOBILITY

Safe Mobility Project

Goodyear built upon the first phase of the Safe Mobility Project launched with Akron Children’s Hospital in 2016 by recommitting support for another three years, beginning in 2019. The next phase of the project will focus on deepening the impact of the initial phase, which focuses on injury prevention. This will include improving outreach in high-risk neighborhoods, increasing the distribution and use of bicycle helmets and educating teens and parents about teen driving safety.

Safe Transportation

Associates in Akron, Ohio, worked with a local organization to repair broken bicycles that are then donated to those in need. Safe transportation is a key barrier to success for many in the community, so the impact of bicycles goes beyond the health benefits of riding. In addition, this program gives new life to something otherwise thrown away.
