June 8-14 is Fall Prevention week. BE CAREFUL OUT THERE!
And now for a safe driving tip:
It only takes a few extra seconds to play it safe when you back up - and those seconds can make the difference between life and death. While hard to imagine, every year more than 100 children die and thousands more are injured by being backed over, sometimes in their own driveways.
Before driving, the National Safety Council urges parents and other drivers to walk completely around their cars to ensure the safety of children and pets.
If I had thought to adopt the preceding safety procedure earlier than now, the lives of many skateboards, scooters and various and sundry other yard toys would have been preserved.
We could refer to it as the 30-second stroll.
I think it's a really good idea.
