Remind Yourself Why You should worry about Road Safety for children in Ireland
The HSE have a video (shared below) online stressing the need for us all to be mindful of road safety for children in Ireland.
What struck us as noteworthy is the statistic that “Half of all child deaths in Ireland occur on our roads”
Many might suggest that there is nothing particularly new in this video, but the fact is that nowadays we all lead busy lives with many distractions, and quite often it is those simple things in life that we neglect to do-or forget to put into practice, that can come back to bite and sometimes with tragic consequences.
Watch the video and remind yourself about the simple practical measures you can put in place to enhance road safety in Ireland. Make the HSE online efforts worthwhile by sharing their video.
We Also Suggest that any Responsible Parent in Ireland Should always Travel with a First Aid Kit
When we are out and about travelling, accidents can happen.We could slip and fall and so could our kids. That day trip to the mountains or a park with no nearby medical assistance available- and a loved one suffers a bad cut etc.For the minimal cost involved, we suggest it is only sensible and responsible to have a first aid kit always available in your car.
