Christmas brings the family together. It’s a time of year when road trips are not just about seeing America’s greatness but also visiting loved ones. Sad to say, but each year we mourn the loss of many people who explored the open roads either with us or people we met on the road. This too, includes many kids under the age of 13.
Every year in America, over 600 children die each year in car crashes and over 120,000 more are injured. Many of these cannot be avoided because of fate or the size of the impact, but many others could. In fact, around 35% of children killed in such accidents were not wearing seatbelts at the time.
