New Safe Kids report underscores importance of buckling up
JACKSON, Miss. – A new report on possible reasons why more teens die in motor vehicle crashes than from any other cause of death is sounding alarms for Children’s of Mississippi’s Safety and Community Outreach staff.
Published in June by Safe Kids Worldwide, “Teens in Cars” is an effort to find ways to reduce the number of teens killed in cars, currently about 2,500 per year. In half of the fatal crashes the teen was not wearing a seat belt.
“We need to encourage everyone to buckle up on every ride, every time,” said Elizabeth Foster, manager of the Safety and Community Outreach program at Children’s of Mississippi, the health system anchored by Batson Children’s Hospital and the lead agency for Safe Kids Mississippi.
