Driveway Safety: Are Your Kids at Risk?
A study by the Bureau of Infrastructure Transport and Regional Economics (BITRE) found that, on average, seven children aged under 15 are killed each year and 60 are seriously injured due to being hit by a vehicle moving around the home.
Very young children face the greatest risk in these incidents—90% of children killed and 70% of those seriously injured are under five years of age.
The brochure Driveway Safety: Are your kids at risk? provides advice about keeping children safe around vehicles at home.
