How to Protect Children from Commercial Drivers

Commercial drivers can be careless, causing serious or deadly accidents. Children tend to be the most vulnerable in accidents involving commercial trucks. The combination of a distracted commercial driver, or one who is in a rush, and a small child who runs into the street after a ball can be catastrophic. This article discusses important tips to protect children from getting injured in accidents involving commercial trucks.Truck on the road

Always Supervise Children Closely

Children should always be supervised when playing anywhere near a road. Even older children should not be left alone in an unfenced yard or play area that borders a street. It only takes a moment for a child to run into the street after a toy, or for a commercial driver to veer into the grass where children are playing.

Never Allow Children to Play in or Near the Street

Don’t allow children to play games, such as roller hockey and soccer, in the street. Go to a park or public recreation center instead. If you have a back yard, consider fencing it. Use extreme caution when allowing children to play on sidewalks. No hopscotch game or sidewalk chalk art is worth an injury to a child from a careless commercial driver veering a few feet in the wrong direction while texting or eating.

Pay Attention to Weather Conditions

Weather conditions can make the line between where the street ends and the yard or sidewalk begins fuzzy – in the literal sense. Extreme weather conditions, such as rain or snow, can make it harder for drivers to control their commercial trucks.

Teach Children to be Aware of their Surroundings

Practice good habits like looking both ways before crossing the street. Establish clear rules about where to play or how far to ride bicycles. Set a good example by never lingering in the street chatting with a neighbor. Only engage in block or cul-de-sac parties when the streets are safely closed. Teach children never to approach a vehicle without an adult, no matter how enticing. Discuss with kids how to behave near school buses, trash trucks, mail carrier cars, construction and utility vehicles and ice cream trucks.
