A: Backing out of a garage and down a driveway can be a very dangerous activity if there are small children in the area. We all know that small children move very erratically so it is important to know their whereabouts at all times. Parents should take steps to ensure that their children are overly supervised when backing the car out of the garage or on the driveway. It is always best to have your children in sight while backing up but that is not always possible. Teach your children to move away from a vehicle as soon as they see anyone get in the driver’s seat or if they hear the car being started. Teach your children to keep their toys or bikes out of the driveway. Teach them not to play around cars. Parents should always walk around the car before putting it in reverse. When backing up parents should always check their mirrors, back up cameras and look behind them to avoid a tragedy. As Daytona Beach auto accident attorneys we see the tragedy of child injury. Please take extreme precautions when driving around children to avoid anything happening to your child. If you have any questions or comments please don’t hesitate to call.
