How To Avoid Your Child From Being Killed By Your Car

Published

on

This is a sensitive topic. However, the subject at hand is one that we cannot ignore.

Nobody wakes up one day and decides to kill their child with their cars, as far as I’m aware.

However, there have been instances where children have been killed inadvertently by their parents’ car, generally as a result of negligence.





This can lead to regret and agony for the rest of one’s life.

In this article, we will discuss certain precautions that should be taken in order to avoid such disasters.

 

Before reversing, double-check, and triple-check everything

There has been situations when parents ran over their children while reversing in their compound. That is because they didn’t double-check to see if the children were around the car.

Don’t rely on the mirrors, get out of the car and check!!

Take precautions! For further security, you can acquire a reverse camera here.

 





Don’t Leave Them Inside The Car

You can’t afford to make this error, especially with the blazing Nigerian sun. Always check the rear seat of your car before getting out when you arrive at your destination to ensure that you don’t go to the movies while your child roasts in the hot sun.

 

Always buckle them up properly

This is something that should never be overlooked.

If they are too small to wear a conventional seatbelt, please put them in a child seat and buckle them in.

When a guy was trying to avoid an accident, he accidentally murdered his daughter by sending her flying through the windscreen.

Allowing this to happen to you is not a good idea.

Sharp Objects Should Be Removed From Their Pockets And Bags

Sharp objects in their pockets or hanging around the car, such as pencils and open pens, can be dangerous in the event of a crash. Ensure that they put everything in their bags and that they do not back their bags while you are driving. All baggage should be placed on the ground or in the trunk. Other sharp objects should be kept in the boot as well.

 

Keep the car door locked when parked

We’ve heard instances of children locking themselves in cars and suffocating because they couldn’t get out because they couldn’t open the doors.

To avoid this, make sure that all of parked vehicles’ doors are closed. In this manner, kids will not be able to sneak into cars without your awareness.
