There are 3 common bike and car crashes when children are involved and each one can lead to a serious injury.
1: The Driveway Ride Out - this is when a child rides out of the driveway and is hit by a car. Teach your child to check the street by looking left, right, and left again until the street is clear.
2: Running a Stop Sign - a crash that involves a biker or car running a stop sign. Always make a complete stop at stop signs. Teach your kids to fully stop and look both ways before proceeding.
#3: The ""No-Look"" Left Turn - When a biker turns left without looking behind for traffic. Teach your child to walk across busy streets or how to make safe turns at residential streets.
As always, choose to celebrate the 4th of July safely and don't drink and drive.
