Safe

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

Goodyear's commitment to safe mobility is inherent in every tire we sell globally. Beyond innovative products, we support programs that promote safe mobility to help make our communities stronger, like the installation and use of child passenger safety seats, bike helmet education and safe driving instruction.

Safe Mobility Project

The Goodyear Foundation collaborates with Akron Children’s Hospital on the Safe Mobility Project. The project expands the hospital’s safety programs, focusing on child passenger seats, bike helmets, pedestrian safety and developing a new effort for teen drivers. In addition to the foundation’s financial support of the Safe Mobility Project, Goodyear associates have the opportunity to participate as volunteers.

Safe Way to School

Goodyear supports the Safe Way to School Campaign for future first graders in Debica, Poland. This program teaches children the principles of safe road behavior and raises awareness of the dangers they may face on their way to and from school. Students receive a reflective vest and triangles, as well as a coloring book that reinforces safe behaviors. Additionally, Goodyear provides financial support and medical equipment to secondary school students for first aid training.

Yellow May Movement

Goodyear sponsors the Yellow May Movement with Brazil’s Observatório Nacional de Segurança Viária (National Road Safety Observatory), aiming to unite civil society, public authorities and private organizations to save lives on Brazil’s roads and highways. The initiative began in 2014 as a way to discuss traffic safety issues in Brazil and reduce driving fatalities.

Safer Roads, Safer You

In India, Goodyear supported the Safer and Convenient Taxi Operations conference under its “Safer Roads, Safer You” platform. The two-day event took place in March 2017 and brought key government and automotive figures together to develop a code of practice for taxi operations in the country, improving driver and passenger safety.
