Child Safety in Family Cars

Buckle Up- road safety for young children

Are you concerned with your child's safety when you take your child out in the family car and road safety for young children ?

"Of course I am "you might say but do your actions prove that you have your child's safety as NO 1 priority when it comes to seating them correctly in the family car ?

We are talking about our precious loved children here that no amount of money can replace the joy we receive from them .

To my horror the other day I saw a car pull up where the mother had the baby in the front seat with her unrestrained .

If there had been a sudden stop the baby would have gone through the windscreen without a doubt .

We have had crashes up here where the people died because of not wearing a seat belt .

How sad . Please Please Please
