If you plan to travel by car with your children, be careful and, above all, do not forget to place them in their approved seat, anchor it to the vehicle with the isofix, and properly adjust the harness or seat belt.
Take special care in times of more traffic: bridges, vacations ... and in times when the weather conditions get worse (fog, rain, snow, wind ...). And while there is a growing awareness of child safety when traveling by car, there are still many deaths that could be prevented.
According to a study by the Road Safety Institute of the Mapfre Foundation and Ford Spain, 40 percent of child deaths in traffic accidents are caused by not using any child restraint system.
The study doesn't just talk about deaths. Between 50 and 80 percent of serious and fatal injuries to children could be prevented by placing children in child restraints appropriate for their weight and height.
Thus, not wearing a seat belt, incorrectly installed the child restraint system or not using it are the most frequent mistakes that endanger life with tragic consequences in children under 14 years of age.
Unfortunately, traffic accidents are still the leading cause of violent death in children under 14 years of age. In 2009, 60 children died in traffic accidents, of whom 40 died in road accidents (34 in cars, 2 in bicycles, 1 in mopeds and 3 pedestrians) and 20 in cities. Do not forget.
Child restraint systems save lives. Almost half of these infant deaths could be prevented with the proper use of restraint systems. When it comes to the lives of your children, there is no excuse.
