According to Safe Kids Worldwide, approximately 2,500 children per year reported to Emergency Rooms and an average of 229 children per year died after being struck by a vehicle in a driveway or a parking area. Close to half of children injured in these incidents were ages 1-4. Sadly, in over 60% of these incidents, there was a parent or close relative behind the wheel of the car. Always use caution when backing up!
