  • The Meramec Region Coalition for Roadway Safety, through the Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety, has parking lot stencils available that, when applied, help remind motorists to use their seat belts.
    The stencils feature the coalition tagline, “Arrive Alive” along with the words “Buckle Up.”
    “Sometimes, that small reminder is what people need to click that seat belt in place, and, while no one likes to think about these things, that seemingly small decision can be the difference in that person to coming home to their family at the end of the day or not,” said Shannon Coatney, Meramec Regional Planning Commission (MRPC) communications coordinator.
    Last year, 744 people lost their lives on Missouri roadways, and 62 percent of those people were not wearing a seatbelt.
    The stencils are available to any business, organization, school or municipality in the eight-county Meramec region.
    Interested parties should contact Coatney at scoatney@meramecregion.org or 573-265-2993 to make arrangement.
