Home > Health & Wellness > Health Library > Child Safety: Streets and Motor Vehicles
It takes a lot of repetition to teach young children about the dangers of streets, cars, and other vehicles. Motor vehicles can cause severe injury and death. That's why it's so important that you be firm about enforcing these rules.
You can help prevent an accident or injury by following these safety tips.
If you can, keep all their activities in areas that are protected from the street and cars.
Teach your child to cross streets at lights and crosswalks.
