Title

American Honda presents DC Comics' Supergirl : in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Transportation's national safety belt campaign

Description

Educational comic book produced and distributed in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Safety Belt Campaign.

A message from Elizabeth Hanford Dole, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation is printed inside the front cover. 

"I know you're all looking forward to gettin gyour driver's licenses soon. But driving a car is a big responsibility. So here are a couple of questions for you to think about. How important do you feel it is to buckle up your safety belt when you get into a car? Do you think you or any of your friends will bever be involved in an accident? Maybe you've never thought about it, but you should. Every ten seconds, someone is injured in a crash. And every ten minutes, someone is killed. You can expect to be in an accident at least once in your life. If you use your safety belt, you more than double your chances of surviving."
