Kids and car safety

Published: April 2014

Safe driving with kids

Children and cars can be a dangerous combination. Always keep safety in mind, whether it’s keeping kids safe in and around vehicles, having the latest safety features on your car, or making sure you have child car seats properly installed for the appropriate ages. Teens also create a safety concern and parents need to make sure they are driving the right vehicle, are trained properly, and avoid distractions behind the wheel.
