Back-up The Bus: Preventing Child Backovers
Even if there is nobody in the cars at the time, it's a bad precedent to set. Before getting in your car, always walk around the car to make sure there are no children behind the vehicle. Be sure you know where your children are when you're backing out. For example, make them stand on a sidewalk or at the front of the driveway. When reversing watch in the rearview mirror to make sure no children suddenly dart behind the car. Use detection devices and keep an ear out for warning sides. When walking in a driveway or through a parking lot with children, always tightly hold his or her hand. A few simple precautions could save your child's life.
