AAA (American Automobile Association) recently posted some valuable tips for safeguarding / child proofing vehicles. In 2006, three to four children were killed each day and more than 500 injured each day in automobile accidents. The safety tips suggested by AAA included the following:
*Secure loose items;
*Use child locks;
*Use correct safety restraint and seat belts;
*Install the child seat securely and correctly;
*Position small children away from airbags;
*Use or store only soft toys in the vehicle;
*Avoid non-regulated products for the vehicle;
*Lock the vehicle and keep keys out of the reach of children; and
*Exercise proper adult supervision.
