Important Car and Street Safety Tips for Children

The importance of teaching your children how to remain safe on the roads while walking, biking, skateboarding, going to school or riding their scooter is extremely important.

These are times when your child may be able to get ahead of you or be on their own. Car safety is equally important and should not be overlooked.

Car and Street Safety

Simple things like teaching them to look both ways before crossing the street are important. Paying attention and knowing how to use and read crosswalk signals, walking on the sidewalk and being aware of cars driving past or approaching them.

Never let them run ahead of you and be sure they know to always hold your hand when crossing the road. Make sure they are aware that cars enter and leave driveways as well and to never play near cars even if they are parked.

Vehicles and Temperatures

Another very important thing to teach them is what to do if they are ever left in a hot or freezing cold car. As soon as your child is old enough to have the ability, teach them how to unbuckle their seatbelt (while also teaching them to never do so unless they have to).

Especially, hot car deaths happen every year and your child should know what to do if they are faced with this situation. Teach them to yell or hit the windows if they cannot get out and show them how to honk the horn to draw attention to themselves. Tell them to continue doing things until someone comes to help.

Also, tell them what to do in both instances. If they are in a car that is too cold – it is best for them to stay in it even if they can escape and continue to try to bring attention to themselves. For hot cars, if they can exit the vehicle, they should do that instead of staying in it and unbuckle anyone else that may be in the vehicle – leaving the doors open as soon as they get out.

This could be vital if you have perhaps an infant and a small child. If the small child can escape and open an airway for the infant, it could mean life or death for the younger child.

Grace Wells grew up in the kind of town where no one locked their doors and parents felt safe letting their kids wander. Things have changed a lot since then. As a mother today, Grace has to worry about so much more than skinned knees and hurt feelings.

Grace believes the best way to keep kids safe is to stay informed. She hopes that her work at Kids Safety 101 makes a difference in children’s lives so that they can grow up as carefree as she did.
