Avoid tragedy by practicing safety

Email

A 14-month-old child was run over and killed when someone backed up a vehicle at a family gathering recently. This happens too often. Very, very sad.

I worked for Bell Telephone, and as part of its company driver's safety education, we were required when getting into a vehicle to always approach it by walking around the back to look for children, bicycles, toys, etc. I don't remember what they called the procedure; I still do it, and in my mind I refer to it as "the circle tour."
