‘Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day’ happens on Oct. 10 and is a nationwide initiative. KDOT offers contests for both children ages 5-13 and teenagers. These contests are hosted to get children and teens to think about traffic safety and decrease traffic deaths.

Children in Kansas, ages 5-13, can submit artwork for the poster contest showing different ways to reduce traffic crashes, whether for vehicles, bikes, trains or walking. Judges then choose 18 regional winners and three statewide winners from that list. A total of 638 children participated this year. There are many prizes provided to the winners, and there is even a drawing hosted for participants.
