Welcome to the OPRC
The Florida Occupant Protection Resource Center (OPRC) was established by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to be a one stop resource center providing equipment/educational/promotional materials on child passenger safety (CPS) seats, safety belts, and air bags to support the services of CPS instructors and technicians across Florida.
Child Passenger Safety Week: September 18-24, 2016
Every 34 seconds one child under age 13 is involved in a crash. Many times deaths and injuries can be prevented by proper use of car seats, boosters, and seat belts. Materials are available to promote occupant protection. Child restraints will be available to CPSTs to order July 8 - August 12 for CPS Week events only.
PSA: Children Sharing Florida Child Restraint Requirements and Recommendations
The OPRC funded a new PSA, produced by Favorite Studios, with children reminding parents of the updated Florida Statute, as well as NHTSA recommendations. Help spread the word by sharing these :30 and :60 videos.
