Because there can be no excuses on the roads. Goal Zero, the awareness-raising campaign rolled out by Fundación MAPFRE, has launched a special campaign to reduce the number of child fatalities on our roads caused by not traveling in the right child restraint system.
Fundación MAPFRE has undertaken various awareness-raising campaigns in 2016: about drugs, crash helmets, speeding, distractions and alcohol. Seat belts and child restraint systems are being added to the key actions for this year.
Fundación MAPFRE, through Goal Zero, is rolling out a series of events in October and November in the Community of Madrid. The dates and venues are:
- 28 - 30 October: Xanadú Shopping Center.
- 5 - 6 November: Plaza Palacios, Getafe.
- 11 - 13 November: Parque Corredor Shopping Center, Torrejón de Ardoz.
- 18 - 19 November: Los Valles Shopping Center, Villalba.
- 25 - 26 November: Hipercor, San José de Valderas.
The session has been designed to include two demonstrations using car seats and child seats from Group 0+, with two test dummies, one using all the safety features correctly and the other with the most common mistakes people make when using these systems. Participants will need to identify which dummy is correctly seated and what the mistakes are in the one who is incorrectly secured.
To support the campaign, a guide will be distributed featuring the main risk factors in the Goal Zero program and giving information (spanish) on the correct installation of child restraint systems in vehicles, including the correct way of positioning children in child seats, and the statistics of the results of not using them properly.
Just by completing the form (spanish) and joining Goal Zero, your name will be entered in a draw for crash helmets, safety kits for cyclists, multipurpose emergency torches, first-aid kits for cars, and sets of hand luggage. There will be a single draw among all the participants for an electric bicycle. See the rules for the draw here (spanish).

Fundación MAPFRE has holded a draw for 10 Group 0+ Pebble child seats from Bébé Confort.
The campaign has concluded on 31 December 2016 and the draw will be held on 15 January 2017 in Madrid before a Notary Public.
