School Safety Programs

School PSA shoot
2017 School Bus Safety PSA Filming

AAA Hudson Valley is dedicated to helping children learn important safety habits including car and bicycle safety. We've developed programs exclusively for school-age children.

Otto Presentations

Otto is a lively, animated traffic safety robot designed to help children learn, remember and practice important traffic safety habits. Otto will teach children about seat belt use, crossing the street safely, playing away from traffic, "stranger danger" and the importance of wearing a helmet when riding a bike.

Schools and child care facilities may request an Otto presentation by emailing Otto.the.auto@aaahv.com or calling 426-1000 ext. 2442.
