Kidsafe SA would like to acknowledge SGIC, proud supporters of the Kidsafe SA driveway safety CSA and the 'Keeping Children Safe Around the Driveway' low-literacy brochure.
Kidsafe SA, with the support of SGIC, has developed a new safety resource titled ‘Keeping children safe around the driveway.’
Every year in Australia, eight children younger than five are killed after being run over at low speed (Baker 2011). In early 2013, a 22 month old girl was tragically killed when she was accidentally runover by a family member in the driveway of their suburban home in Adelaide.
This driveway safety resource has been designed in a low-literacy and easy-to-read format to convey clear and concise driveway safety messages and recommendations. It aims to raise awareness and empower parents and carers with the information and strategies to prevent driveway runover incidents.
We encourage you to download, print and distribute our new driveway safety resource by clicking on the picture to the left. Alternatively, you can call our office to order hardcopies of the resource to distribute and display at your local community/health/childcare centre.
Your support in this campaign will help to spread vital driveway safety messages to parents, carers and the wider community.
