5 amazing facts about the safety of children in cars

Car crashes that you hear about in the news often take place on the busiest highways. But many of the accidents the victims of which are children occur in the city during normal trips with kids to a kindergarten, a grocery store, or a nearby park.

That is why it is very important to take all the same precautions for a short trip as for a two-hour trip to visit the grandmother in the village.

Always fasten your child, no matter how far or near you have to go. And do not forget to use a seat belt.

After all, children notice your actions and use them as an example.

Children aged 4 to 8 years are more likely to be injured than toddlers under 4 years old. Perhaps this is because parents downplay the danger of driving a car as their children grow up. Almost all moms and dads know how important it is to fix a baby in the car seat.

Children aged 4−8 years, which are fastened during the trip, only 20%. This is despite the fact that security experts strongly recommend doing it always.

Many parents also allow children to sit in the front seat before they are 12 years old. The safest place for children is the back seat, in case of an accident, they will be covered with front seats or a boot.

You might think that driving a large and high vehicle you are protected from road hazards. But, as sad statistics show, SUVs are no safer than regular sedans. They often turn over, especially when they run into fences, or they are brought in when they turn too fast.

It is difficult to make accurate comparisons, but less high vehicles are considered safer family cars. Experts advise parents using off-road vehicles to equip the car with an electronic stabilizer, control control and designer who protect the vehicle from overturning.

Four-wheel drive helps improve traction when driving in snow and mud, but under other weather conditions, these same qualities can play against you.

It is impossible to leave children for a minute unattended even in a car parked in a safe place. About 220 children are injured every year while in parked cars.

Some children, playing in the car, themselves contributed to the accident, pushing the pedals or switching gear levels, climbing up and through the folding seats, finding themselves in the trunk as if trapped. And finally, at least 30 children a year get heatstroke from the heat when parents leave them alone in the car.

Nearly 400 children under the age of 12 die annually under the wheels of a car in the so-called “safe” zones. Keep your child’s hand all the time, especially in car parks.

And even on safe sections of the road, watch the baby carefully. Studies conducted around the world have shown that most drivers do not slow down near children’s institutions, even if there is a warning sign next to them, “Attention, children!”.

When buying a car in which you are going to transport not only adult passengers, but also children, you should take a more responsible approach to the issue of safety, which is “active” and “passive”.

The passive safety system includes fasteners for a child seat (conventional Isofix system), seat belts, active head restraints, and airbags, but the latter perform their protective function only when a person is fastened with a seat belt.

If you are going to transport a child in the front passenger seat in a child car seat, first make sure that your car has the ability to disable the front passenger airbag.

The three components of the brake system allow safe and effective braking:
1) The electronic brake force distribution (EBD) system provides optimal braking on all four wheels, depending on vehicle load and road conditions.
2) The ABS system during braking prevents the wheels from locking and retains the ability to drive.
3) ESP – electronic system for maintaining vehicle stability. It contributes to the safety of driving on slippery roads, with active maneuvers and in high-speed turns on a dry hard surface.
