Frontover and Backovers Prevention for Big Kids

Kids love cars, and when they see a parked car, they don’t even think about the possibility of getting hurt or seriously injured. That’s why parents have to be extra careful. Here are a few tips to keep your kids safe in and around cars.

Top Safety Tips

  1. We know you’re often in a hurry, but before you drive away, take a few seconds to walk all the way around your parked car to check for children.
  2. When checking for kids around your vehicle, see if anything that could attract a child, such as a pet, bike or toy, is under or behind your vehicle before getting in and starting the engine.
  3. Identify and use safe play areas for children, away from parked or moving vehicles. Teach kids to play in these areas instead of in, around or behind a car.
  4. Accompany kids when they get in and out of a vehicle. Hold their hands while walking near moving vehicles or in driveways and parking lots or on sidewalks.
  5. Don’t allow children to play unattended in parking lots when cars are present.
