Before Driving – PLEASE – Walk Around Your Vehicle The Correct Way!
If you will be reversing
Check behind your car beforehand.
If you will be driving forwards
Walk around the front of the vehicle.
- Make sure 4 tires are correctly inflated (not flat),
- the path between the tires is clear,
- and the blind zone is free of obstacles.
- If your car is parked on a main street, walk toward your car facing the traffic; get eye contact and open your door only when safe.
Every year, children are killed and injured in their own driveway by their own parents who reverse or drive forwards without knowing the children are in front/behind a large vehicle. These tragic events can be eliminated by proper approach to your vehicle, each and every time you drive.
