USA Today – Liz Kracht

“With school back in session, it’s a great time to encourage our children to be healthy and active by walking to school when possible. There are, however, important safety tips we need to remember.

It has been reported that 61 children are hit by vehicles every day in the U.S. In addition, teen and young adult (ages 15-29) pedestrians are more likely to be involved in crash-related injuries than any other age group. Why? There have been studies that have shown this is related to distraction: headphones, texting and use of other handheld electronics while walking. We need to remind our kids to stop texting, put down their devices and take headphones off before crossing the street.”(more)
