Health Tip: Avoid Driveway Accidents

Never leave keys in the ignition

(HealthDay News) -- Driveway accidents are more common than you may think, but they're also preventable, the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh says.

Here's a list of precautions to ensure driveway safety:

  • Do not use the driveway as a playground.
  • Block the driveway off to prevent cars from pulling in if your children are playing there.
  • Know where every child is when backing out of the driveway.
  • Install extended mirrors on SUVs to improve your view.
  • Never leave the car running.
  • Never leave the keys in the ignition.
