Around Town

One day your child is going to cross the street without you. One day your child will bicycle out of your sight to go to a friend’s house around the corner. One day your child may ask you for a skateboard.

It’s important that before those days happen you teach your child the best way to stay safe.

Consider that:

  • More than twice as many child pedestrians are killed on Halloween than any other time of the year.
  • Nearly 40 percent of all people injured in golf cart crashes are under the age of 16.
  • More than 200,000 children are brought to emergency rooms every years for injuries suffered on playgrounds.
  • More than 82,000 people are treated in emergency rooms every year for skateboarding with most of the fatalities teenagers or younger.
