Back to school means an increased risk of child injury

This is a chaotic time of the year in Doylestown and other Pennsylvania cities. Children are returning to school in droves, many of them traveling on foot. Most parents worry that their children will be involved in vehicle and pedestrian accidents during this time. Short of taking time out from your schedule to drive your kids to school, what can you do to keep them safe from a personal injury?

According to SafeKids.org, you can teach your children about pedestrian safety in just a few minutes. The website offers an animated infographic parents can share with their kids to teach them about safety. The infographic is different from other safety tip articles because it highlights the pedestrian mistakes that often lead to serious personal injury.

Sharing the infographic with your children can help them remember what not to do when walking in or near traffic. Below you will find a few highlights from the infographic.

  • Don't let phones or other devices distract you while walking
  • Don't wear dark clothing when walking in the dark
  • Don't walk in the roadway when traveling to and from school
  • Don't cross the road in the middle of a block
  • Don't forget to watch out for reckless motorists

Another interesting thing about the infographic is that its animations show what happens if you make a mistake when walking to and from school. It also offers animations showing how to walk properly.

While teaching your kids about pedestrian safety is critical, it cannot always prevent an accident-related personal injury. If your child suffers an injury while walking or biking to school, please consider talking with an attorney. When motorists know that they will have to face consequences for their careless actions, it may deter them from choosing to behave irresponsibly.
