Seatbelt Safety

I have this vivid memory of travelling on a road trip as a kid with the seat belt comfortably pushed down under my arm so I could lie down, sort of, and rest my head on a pillow. Well, luckily we weren't involved in a crash because the seat belt would definitely not been able to do it's job used that way. As adults it is so important to demonstrate how to use a seat belt correctly so it can restrain us in an accident or sudden stop with the least damage possible to our bodies

Top Tips for Road Safety with Kids

Here are some top safety tips that I use with my own children. Walk Safely The footpath is the safest place to walk, have distance between you and the curb.

Drivers in a rush can miss pedestrians crossing their driveway. Cross Safely If a school entrance has a Kea Crossing (school crossing) manned by Road Wardens/Patrollers
