National Child Passenger Safety Month

National Child Passenger Safety Week begins Sunday, September, 18th and ends on Saturday, September, 24th, 2022. Saturday, September, 24th, is also National Car Seat Check Up Day. Throughout the week, Buckleupallofus giant balloon will be showcasing and attending classic car and truck shows, cruise nights, community events and car seat check ups with police departments across New England. The goal is to reach out to as many kids and families reminding them about vehicle and passenger safety during a designated child passenger safety focus week recognized nationwide. Police departments across the USA are teaming up during this focus week with children's hospitals and child safety advocates in their cities, towns and communities hoping to reach out to families about vehicle and child passenger safety. The US Department of Transportation, (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), located in Washington, DC., changed the NCPSW month to September recently, instead of the month of February, after years of cancelled events due to inclement weather. The overall weather conditions are much better during the late summer and early fall for outdoor car seat check ups and events. US Department of Transportation and NHTSA have presented me with numerous honors, plaques, certificates of appreciation and awards for my years of creative and tireless dedication regarding ongoing kids and teens traffic safety campaigns and programs utilized by police departments nationwide. I hosted Bucky car seat check ups in the city of Woonsocket for years at Landmark Medical Center with NHTSA Region 1 Directors out of Boston, the RI Governor's Office on Highway Safety, Hasbro Children's Hospital, Woonsocket Police Department, RI State Police and surrounding police departments statewide that partnered with me and Bucky trying to keep kids safer in vehicles. We held CPS Conferences in Landmark Medical Center main lobby with pediatric guest speakers and law enforcement representatives addressing kids and vehicle safety for years. Bucky Car Seats For Kids Campaign evolved from there, and since then, has been reaching out to families about the importance of properly restraining infants and kids in car seats, booster seats and seat belts while riding in vehicles. Car seats are often provided for free to low income families and single parents across the state at car seat check ups keeping kids safer in family vehicles. Bucky balloon appearances and take home CPS Coloring Posters and Fridge Magnets will be handed out to kids and families for free throughout the week, weather permitting. Bucky balloon showcase week ends on Sunday, September, 25th, 2022, at the 8th Annual imPossible Dream Charity Car Show at their playground location from 11-2pm. Raising funds to help maintain the playground designed for disabled children to enjoy for eight years. Free Bucky kids safety giveaways, trophies, classic vehicles, food trucks and live radio broadcast throughout the event. Warwick Police Department traffic, motorcycle and canine division officers support Bucky community safety outreach efforts and attend every year. Buckleupallofus charity car shows and events are extremely popular and grow every year reaching thousands of kids with take home child vehicle safety coloring formats, materials and products across New England and New York State. "Because We Care".

Buckleupallofus Bus Stop Kids Take To The Airwaves

Child safety is very important and there must be multiple avenues utilized in order to truly reach a very large kids and family audience with safety messages and consistent reminders. This online publication format is a great educational and awareness vehicle and offers kids and families an opportunity to learn about safety with coloring and activities content created specifically for children as well as feature articles that mirror those kids coloring cartoons on a weekly basis for parents and guardians.

National Child Passenger Safety Month

Written by Jim Weicherding / Every month of September, a focus on properly restrained children in vehicles is recognized during National Child Passenger Safety Week. This year’s focus week is from Sunday, September 18th thru Saturday, September 24th, 2022. Saturday, the 24th, is also National Car Seat Check Up Day. Many police departments team up with children’s hospitals across the USA each year during these focus weeks to help insure that little kids and infants are safely restrained in backseats. Car seat check ups are crucial when it comes to car seats and infants. Outdated, worn or used car seats, can put an infant in harm’s way if that vehicle is involved in a crash. Trained car seat installers, inspectors and specialists can check your car seat for safety relatively quickly and you will not be detained for a long period of time. It’s well worth the amount of time it takes to ensure that your child is safer. During the year, many police departments offer car seat check ups and you can visit your city, town and community police department website for more information. Buckleupallofus “Car Seats For Kids” Campaign is at its busiest during the month of September across New England with many showcases at area car shows, cruise nights, festivals, fairs, race tracks and police held community events. Funds raised, helps purchase car seats for low income families and single parents. Bucky has been invited to attend many of these police department community events during the month of September, and even during the month of October, when the region’s weather is much more accommodating for hosting outdoor events. Bucky is a more than ten foot tall child passenger safety mascot cartoon inflatable balloon character dinosaur with a seatbelt for a tail and a great big smile attracting kids and families to community events, race tracks and car shows with thousands of items such as, fridge magnets, stickers, coloring posters, safety and fun paks, full color posters to take home with them to help remind everyone in their family to boost up! and buckle up! for safety. This September, we even have Buckleupallofus Fridge Magnets handouts featuring the Motorhead Magazine logo for all of you automotive enthusiasts out there. If you are hosting car shows, cruise nights, race track events, community events and more outdoor venues in the future, there is now a Buckleupallofus E-Commerce WebSite where you can purchase Bucky Fridge Magnets for as low as just $2.99 each to pass out to kids attending your venues and events all year long. Motorhead Magazine is also a proud sponsor. Visit: and order yours today! Everyone loves fridge magnets and now we can all keep kids safer at the same time when we put them on display in homes across America.

BUS STOP KIDS “Back to School”

Written by Jim Weicherding / It’s that time of year again folks. Kids are back in school for the new year. Many of these students take the school bus back and forth to school every week day and this can put them in harm’s way if they are not careful and those individuals driving near and around students and school buses in their vehicles are not careful. Many police officers I attend community events with this time of year talk about how dangerous some drivers are when it comes to kids walking to and from school buses that is borderline reckless. Many drivers pass school buses when their hazard lights are flashing putting not only bus monitors in harm’s way but also the students getting onto and off of the school bus while crossing the streets. Traveling in communities such as South County, Rhode Island, have safety hazards when drivers do not stop for flashing over head lights on school buses because they think if the bus is on the farside of the wider roadways it’s okay to just keep driving. That is not the case. Even though many roadways in the southern part of the state have four lane travel roads a driver approaching from the opposite direction or trying to pass on the left side of the school bus should still come to a complete stop when flashing lights are on. The students may be on the right side of the roadway entering the school buses but that doesn’t mean someone could try and cross that roadway to catch the bus before it pulls away. Bus monitors also walk across the front of the bus to the other side to check the area and under the school bus in order to make certain it is all clear and safe to drive away to the next bus stop. Patience is very important when children are out and about during the school year when it comes to driver and vehicle safety. Worried that you might be late for work, or an appointment? Leave earlier, allowing for school bus stop delays. Speed is another serious factor when it comes to bus stops, school buses and kids. Slow down. Pay attention. Keep your eyes on the road and observe traffic laws in order to keep yourself and others safer. A series of BUS STOP KIDS Coloring Cartoons are being distributed to grade school aged students across the region to help prevent unintentional injuries and potentially prevent a fatality during this school year in grade schools, libraries, daycares, family clinics, pediatric doctors offices and community centers. Kids will be kids and adults should be cautious when driving their vehicles near bus stops and school buses. Let’s try and keep everyone safer this school year by making good decisions and driving safely. A child’s life could depend on your actions.

Motorhead Minds

Motorhead Minds Written by Jim Weicherding

What makes us Motorhead’s? Is it genetics? Is it how we were raised? Is it something we grow into or is it just a frame of mind? I can honestly say, “I don’t know.” All I do know is, “I’m a Motorhead!” and I’m proud of it. Not everyone is into fast cars, big trucks and classic vehicles but hey, I’m not into collecting stamps, gardening or video games, so I gotta do something with my time and that’s all about being a Natural Born Motorhead. Since I was a little kid I was always fascinated with muscle cars and big trucks. Loved them! Could not get enough of them. Like many of you reading this article, I was into playing with Matchbox Cars and Trucks in the back yard when the weather allowed and inside my bedroom when the weather didn’t allow for playing in the back yard. I built model cars and trucks every chance I had and had a bedroom full of shelves filled with all of these hand built models. I always asked Santa for these types of toys for Christmas and every single year that’s what I found wrapped under the Christmas Tree or in my Christmas Stocking nailed to the wall somewhere in our parlor. If Santa did not bring me these types of toys and models would I still be a Motorhead today? Not really sure, but I’d like to think so. I didn’t grow up around car people or family members so why was I different than everybody else? It might have been the timeline when I was a kid. It was the sixties! Everything about the sixties automotive era was on television, in magazines, on TV commercials, cruising down the roads and streets across America. I grew up surrounded by these images of power plant muscle cars and trucks. That might have been the driving force behind how I became a Motorhead. It was my environment. It was all around me. I don’t meet a lot of people who were kids in the eighties or nineties that are Automotive Enthusiasts unless they grew up in homes where dad and/or mom was already a Motorhead. My kids became Motorhead’s but that was because I was a Motorhead. See the connection? I grew up as a kid in the sixties. Everything was Muscle Cars and Fast Trucks. So, it pulled me in because that was the overall environment of that decade. Younger Motorhead’s of today are primarily Motorhead’s because they grew up as kids where their home life was built around that same environment. If this is a trend, I hope it doesn’t play out the way I expect it to play out decades down the road. When being a Motorhead is a thing of the past because time erases those of us who are avid Car and Truck Enthusiasts and we no longer cruise the streets, roadways and highways of America. Let’s try and help avoid that. This Christmas, go buy your kids and grandkids Car and Truck presents. Buy them models of cool classic cars, muscle cars and trucks. Help them build those models together. Play with toy cars and trucks with them on their bedroom floors. Put away the video games and turn off the television and electronics and teach kids how to play again. Like we did when we were kids. Buy them car and truck Coloring Books and Posters. Especially nostalgia themes with a lot of classic cars and trucks. Influence these kids to go outside and play with their cars and trucks. Have your kids help you work on your own car or truck when it needs repairs or upgrades. Get their hands dirty by doing something they might not do on their own. Help build a whole new generation of Motorhead’s and do it this Christmas with purchased items that are automotive related. We need to keep the Motorhead’s of America growing and thriving into the next generation. Have a great Christmas and stay safe on our roadways during the holiday season. “Buckle Up!”

Buckleupallofus Cruisin’ For Safety

Buckleupallofus Cruisin’ For Safety Written by Jim Weicherding / Bucky is quickly becoming the most requested Showcase Attraction at Classic Car Shows & Cruise Nights Across New England. This big blue dinosaur with a big smile and a seatbelt for a tail has appeared at nearly 300 Classic Car Shows, Cruise Nights, Community Events, Race Tracks, DragWays, Plazas, Malls and Auto Dealerships since it first arrived in the state of Rhode Island just 24 Months Ago. Classic Car Shows and Cruise Nights are the most popular attraction venues but that’s because the creator of Buckleupallofus is a long time automotive enthusiast himself. Second most popular venues are Race Tracks and DragWays Events. The creator of Buckleupallofus is also a huge racing and drag racing enthusiast. And again, these venues and events also makes perfect sense for Showcasing the Giant Buckleupallofus Child Passenger Safety Mascot Balloon and passing out Child Safety Materials Like Fridge Magnets, Stickers, Book Page Savers, Coloring Posters, Coloring Books and Bucky Kids Safety Fun Paks to Kids; it’s all about automotive featured venues and events. There are automobiles everywhere and there are kids everywhere. These photos were taken recently at a huge Car Cruise Hosted at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park and adjacent Bogey’s Ice Cream located in Thompson Connecticut. Buckleupallofus Giant Balloon was so popular the owners of Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park asked if the Bucky Balloon could be showcased at their upcoming Kids & Family Appreciation Race Day on Sunday, September 8th, 2019. Of course, Bucky Giant Balloon will Showcase and we will be there to Pass Out 1,000’s Of Bucky Featured Print Items and Products during the Daylong Race Event For Kids to Take Home Reminding Them about Buckle Up! Boost Up! Car Seat and Traffic Safety. The month of September, is also recognized across the USA as National Child Passenger Safety Month. Bucky Giant Balloon will be Showcasing Across New England Reminding Kids About Buckle Up! and Traffic Safety all month long almost every single day of the month. You know you have something special when they create a Bucky Ice Cream Flavor For Kids too. And who doesn’t love Cotton Candy Flavored Ice Cream? Bucky sure does and he lets all of the Kids know it.


Buckleupallofus Evolution

Written by Jim Weicherding

What started out years ago as a simple idea to try and keep Kids Safer in their Family Vehicles has evolved into something much bigger than first imagined. Being a Cartoonist and Artist has been trying at times, especially earlier in my life, because I wasn’t certain what direction I wanted to go in regarding my talents and creative concepts. I was a big Classic Car and Truck Enthusiast and Owned Plenty Of Cool Muscle Cars and Big Trucks over the years. In my twenties I started attending mini-Car Shows. Back then they were just starting out here in New England with pockets of small clubs hosting Car Shows & Cruise Nights. I owned some real nice muscle cars including plenty of Pontiac GTO’s back in the day and my friends would invite me to hang out with them at these small gatherings and talk about cars and trucks. Most of the time, Little Kids would show up with their parents to check out our rides. I was drawing some cool hot rods and muscle cars coloring pages to Pass Out to the kids and figured I could also help remind them to be safer while riding in their own vehicles. Buckleupallofus was born. I would illustrate cool Bucky Hot Rod & Muscle Car Coloring Pages and go to the nearest copy store to make a couple hundred copies and started passing them out at these Car Show & Cruise Night gatherings. I Created hand painted Bucky Cruisin’ Safety Billboards to Display at these venues and eventually created Coloring Books and Products for kids to Take Home With Them. Local and community business owners saw what I was doing and offered to help with my printing and travel expenses by paying me Sponsorship money if I added their businesses and companies onto all of my Handouts to Kids & Parents. Today, they are all included in my Bucky Safety Coloring Posters and Coloring Books I Pass Out at more than 100 Classic Car Shows & Cruise Nights Across New England. And now, I have a Giant Bucky Balloon Attraction and the demand for Appearances is at an all time high. More Bucky Products and Print Formats Are passed out to Kids & Parents and Bucky’s Safety Messages Reach many more Kids today than ever before. Not only across New England, but also across the USA. More Classic Car & Truck Clubs along with Hot Rod Clubs and Car Show & Cruise Night Hosts are Reaching out to Help Bucky’s Safety Messages go to Kids in their own communities, towns, cities and states Nationwide. The most important thing we can do as a Group of Automotive Enthusiasts is to Reach Kids, Teens and Adults about Traffic Safety. And there are Millions Of Us Out There. More than 120,000,000 to be close to exact. Bucky has evolved from being a Single Page Coloring Sheet passed out to Kids at local car enthusiasts gatherings, more than a decade ago, to becoming a huge in-demand Kids & Family Safety Events Series of Events Featuring Numerous Corporate America, Company and Business Sponsored Products, Printed Formats, Banners, Publications and a Giant Balloon Reminding Kids to Boost Up! Buckle Up! and Parents Properly Restrain Kids in Car Seats. Keep ‘em Buckled Up and Remember; “Buckleupallofus!”
