Transport of Children
 
Traffic accidents or automobile crashes are one of the most common causes of injury and death for children. You should pay particular attention to preventing vehicle injuries.
  • Always use an approved car seat for any child under 40 lbs. Continue to use the car seat until the child outgrows it. All other child and adult passengers should use seat belts and harnesses.
  • Only allow a vehicle to be operated by a person with a valid driver's licence for that type of vehicle. 
  • Never allow anyone to operate a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, including prescription drugs that may make a person drowsy. 
  • Make sure that any vehicle used to transport children is licenced and registered according to state laws. 
  • Equip each vehicle with a first aid kit and emergency identification and contact information for all the children being transported. Properly maintain each vehicle. 
  • Air condition a vehicle when the temperature is above 75°F; heat it when the temperature is below 50°F. 
  • Never allow smoking or playing audio equipment loudly in a vehicle when transporting children. A driver should never use earphones while driving. 
  • Never leave a child unsupervised in a vehicle. 
  • Carefully supervise children getting in or out of a vehicle to avoid injury.
  • Upon boarding, make sure each child is properly buckled in. Upon exiting, make sure each child is clear of the path of the vehicle and any other traffic. 
  • Before leaving the vehicle, check to make sure that all children have exited.
Important tips on CHILD SAFETY
  • Never cross the STREET in the middle... only at the CROSSWALKS.
  • Look in all DIRECTIONS before you CROSS
  • Obey all TRAFFIC SIGNS, or LIGHTS.
  • Choose the safest route to SCHOOL if you are walking even if it is not the shortest.
  • Practice the walking route with your kids.
  • PARENTS... when dropping off kids, always have them exit on the PASSENGER SIDE.
  • Make sure they have all their stuff ready before you get to school, so they don't dash back for something they forget.
  • If on a school bus, hold on to the seat in front of you.
  • Keep your head, hands and arms inside the bus.
  • Place your backpack under the seat.. not behind you.
  • Kids under 12 should only ride in the backseat of a car.
  • Never place a seat belt behind a kid. They must fit in a belt properly (its the law). There are booster seats for kids who don't come up high enough
