Frontovers / Backoversfrontovers iconbackovers icon

Every week at least 110 children are injured or killed after being run over in parking lots and driveways. These are not only predictable, but they are also preventable tragedies that are happening most frequently to very young children under age 5. Every vehicle has a blind zone behind, on the side, and in front of the vehicle where the driver cannot see a small child.

Hot Car Dangershot car icon

According to Kids and Car Safety, over 1,000 children have died in hot cars nationwide since 1990. Even the best of parents or caregivers can unknowingly leave a sleeping baby in a car, and the end result can be injury or even death.

Or, that if your vehicle crashes into a body of water, you have less than 60 seconds to escape before the pressure from the water becomes too great to get out? Learn how to keep your family safe and survive a vehicle submersion with the SWOC method.
