Safety City Helps Keep Kids Safe

Bowling Green's pint-sized "City Within a City" is helping keep your children safe.

It's been nearly nine-years since "Safety City" was built next to Greenwood High School.

The scaled down version of Bowling Green comes complete with traffic lights, streets and even Bowling Green's signature red, white and blue water tower.

Safety City was built as a result of the 1996 abduction and murder of young Morgan Violi.

Area businesses donated money to create this exciting teaching tool for area school children.

"It's a hands on situation that's not in the classroom, where students see first hand what to do in different situations," said Trooper Charles Swiney, with the Kentucky State Police.

Driving the go-carts is one of the biggest hits for students visiting Safety City.

Safety City instructors teach about traffic safety, guns, stranger danger and much more.
