Parents, caregivers, counselors, school employees, teachers, medical providers, and others should take steps to make sure that children are safely transported on roads and highways. Seat belts should be used. Child seats and booster seats should be utilized depending on the age and weight of the child. In some instances, special safety measures need to be used since the child has special health or medical needs. The National Center for the Safe Transportation of Children with Special Health Care Needs has information and resources on its web site. Parents and those driver and caregivers responsible for transporting children with special health care needs should review this web site and implement the recommended measures. By having the right safety equipment in place along with the correct use and application of this equipment – many serious personal injuries and deaths can be avoided.
