CAR SAFETY AND CHILDREN AT RW!
Stressing and promoting safety has always been a part of the Ridgeway community. Jennifer Ungerer a parent and member of the Ridgeway Safety Team, embarked on promoting awareness on “Car Safety and Children” in the month of May. Jennifer, who is an M.D. handed out important flyers to parents on the car pick up line as well as distributed fliers to kindergarten and first grade. Jennifer gave us a few tips to keep in mind when dealing with car safety and children:
Car safety and Children
· Use car seats with a 5 point harness until the highest weight / height allowed by the seat manufacturer.
· Use booster seats until child reaches 57 inches in height = 4 ft. 9 inches.
· Children younger than 13 years of age are safest in the rear seats.
