Children cannot always be seen
Because of their size, children are difficult for drivers to see and they are often unaware of the dangers of moving vehicles. Therefore, car parks and driveways can be a hazardous place for children.
On average, seven children are killed each year and 60 seriously injured after being hit or run over by a motor vehicle at home. Very young children are at greatest risk. 90% of children killed and 70% of those seriously injured are under five years of age.
The vehicle is generally moving slowly when these run overs occur. And it is generally a family member or friend driving at the time of the run over.
Our road safety education professional development sessions are commencing in May.
Please register early for these online sessions as places are limited.
