When driving children for a long family trip, often kids need items to keep them occupied. Be aware that loose items in the car can be thrown or become missiles in the event of a crash or sudden stop. Make sure loose items including DVD players, laptops, purses, CD’s, gifts, etc. are secured in either the trunk, console area, or under a cargo net. Only provide children with soft toys and games to play in the car.
Tomorrow we will cover how to not get distracted while driving children.
