The 5th danger of kids and vehicles is Trunk Entrapment! This simply means kids getting locked in a trunk. Kidsandcars.org says “Sometimes children play in places they shouldn’t, like the trunk of the car. If your child got trapped inside, could he or she get out?” What a great question….have you talked to your kids about the dangers of trunks? Maybe you drive and SUV and don’t have a trunk. But what about when they are at a friends house. A glow in the dark internal trunk release is now required in all new vehicles with a trunk. You can also purchase a kit and add it to an older model trunk.
Please take a minute to talk to your kids about the dangers around vehicles….it just might save their life.
