Weekly Tip - Spot the Tot

Another great blog post from Safe Kids USA discusses the many injuries and deaths that occur annually as a result of children being run over in driveways, many times by someone in the household.

"Nearly 7 children, ages 1 to 14, go to emergency rooms each day with injuries sustained from a vehicle backing up. Of that group, an average of 230 die each year according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). With school out for the summer, kids are everywhere,: playing in driveways, cul de sacs, sidewalks…. It's also light outside later, extending play time well into evening."
