It may be surprising to hear that a number of the leading causes of death among kids is auto injuries. This is often due to parents not taking appropriate precautions. It is projected that of children under 12 years old who died in automobile crashes in 2015, 35% of these weren’t in a safety seat or using a seat belt. For parents, only a little knowledge can go a long way in ensuring children’s safety in vehicles.
Sadly, drunk drivers are one of the leading causes of child passenger deaths, and more than 60 percent of those deaths are from the children’s parents drinking while they are driving. When a parent pushes drunk with their children, over 60% do not properly restrain or buckle up their child. For your children’s safety, never drink and drive.
