Safekids.org reports more than nine thousand children are treated each year in emergency rooms for injures that occurred while they were unattended in or around motor vehicles. A significant portion of those injuries could have been prevented. Next time you enter or exit a driveway keep the following in mind:
- Before backing up always thoroughly check your surroundings. Don’t rely solely on back up cameras.
- Carefully monitor little ones whenever they are around vehicles, especially in busy parking lots.
- Show your children which areas of your driveway are ‘danger zones’ (blind spots, high volume areas, etc.).
