For parents and government alike, child safety on the nation's roads should be viewed as fundamental. Of course, for most parents, it already is. Fortunately, the government is now redoubling its efforts. If you join in with this effort, you can help keep kids safe as they travel throughout the country.
A recent research report by the organization Safe Kids Worldwide established that in the United States and in countries around the world, the leading cause of death for children ages 5 to 19 is road traffic injuries. This statistic inspired the current drive to increase safety for children on the roads.
