Helping children and families navigate busy streets safely

The C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital “Roller Buggy” Mobile App

Roller Buggy is an interactive video game meant to teach children and young teens how to safely navigate busy city streets in a fun, creative way.  Choose a character, then roller skate through a busy city collecting virtual “bugs.”  You’ll have to cross busy intersections to collect the bugs, but make sure you do so safely to keep the game going!
