New Kidsafe SA & Cops for Kids Driveway Safety Campaign
Kidsafe SA with the support of Cops for Kids has launched their Driveway Safety campaign in response to an increasing amount of driveway runovers in South Australian in recent years.
Kidsafe SA seeks to educate South Australian families about how they can keep their children safe from preventable injury and accidents.
Kidsafe SA, with the support of Cops for Kids, has developed a new driveway safety video.
These tragedies happen quickly and it is often a relative that is reversing the car. Children aged 1-2 years old and under 1m tall are at the greatest risk, even those still crawling.
Preventing driveway run overs is as simple as Supervise, Separate & See
Supervise – always watch your children when the vehicle is to be moved. Hold their hand or hold them close to keep them safe.
Separate – restrict access and separate play areas from driveways & garages
See – be aware that all cars have a blind space behind them (some up to 15m), always walk around your car first before getting in.
Driveway runovers are preventable. If you don’t know, don’t go.
