I'll Never Get Off the Soap Box...
I'll never get off my soap box about the safety of kids in & around cars.
Since my nephew's death in September 2005...it's just something that I think about constantly.
Recently, Christian singer, Steven Curtis Chapman lost a daughter when she was accidentally struck by a car in the driveway of their home.
Pray for this family.
*Never Never Never leave your car unlocked, even in the garage or driveway.
*Contact your legislators about mandatory safety features in the automobile industry---the technology exists to improve safety with our cars, but the features are options, not requirements.
*Invest in rear backup sensor for your car, or if looking to purchase a new car, consider purchasing a car with this feature.
*Never leave your child unattended in your car, even just for a minute! It takes less than a minute to steal a car.
