Keep kids safe during summer heat
Warmer weather and no school mean local streets and sidewalks are filled with more walking and biking traffic, so drivers and parents must pay special attention to children’s safety.
“In the summer months, there are many additional precautions that parents need to focus on to reduce accidents,” said Louise Davis, Extension professor and director of the Mississippi Child Care Resource and Referral Network with Mississippi State University Extension Service.
Bicycle helmets can mean the difference between life and death whether they are on toddlers in the driveway or on older riders on trails or roadways. In 2010, almost one-fifth of all children aged five to nine who were killed in traffic accidents were pedestrians, according to statistics from the Mississippi Public Safety Data Lab.
