RoSPA helps young children remain safe on driveways

18th July 2013 | Health and Safety Signs

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has issued advice to keep children safe on driveways.

Research from the organisation found that at least 26 children have been killed on, or near, the driveway of their property since 2001.

With this in mind, the organisation has produced a range of tips on reversing, parking and other car safety issues as part of its 'Child on the Drive!' campaign.

Lindsey Brough, RoSPA’s road safety research and evaluation officer, said: “With good weather finally here, young children will be grasping the opportunity to play outside and are more likely to be travelling by car to and from organised activities.

“Drivers have a limited view when reversing, and as the statistics sadly show, it’s too easy for a small child to slip into a vehicle’s blind zone.”

Ms Brough continued by saying that drivers should walk around their car to learn where children are before they begin manoeuvring, as it is impossible to see everything through their mirrors.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801613974-ADNFCR
