For a safe car ride, you need to remember 6 tips

Nowadays, car has been the common transportation for most people, however, car accidents still happen a lot. There are six tips can make your car ride safety.


1. Always wear your seat belt. A seat belt should be on before the car moves, and should stay on until the engine is turned off at your destination.

2. Use both lap and shoulder belts. While most cars have lap and shoulder belts that buckle as a unit, but some have two separate belts — one lap and one shoulder — or only a lap belt. Make sure your child looks for and fastens both belts.

3. Never share a seat belt. Two kids should never buckle up as a pair.

4. Ride in the backseat. Kids younger than 12 should always ride in the backseat. Passenger-side air bags, designed to protect a person with a much bigger body, can seriously injure a small child.

5. Stay calm. Kids need to understand the importance of staying calm and low-key in the backseat. If they’re jumping around or yelling, it can distract the driver and put all the passengers at risk.

6. Follow these rules all the time. Kids have a tendency to think that rules only apply when they’re with their parents. Instruct your child to always follow the rules for car safety — even if they’re in someone else’s car. For instance, if she’s asked to sit in the front seat of a car, she should tell the driver that she would prefer to sit in the back.
