How many of you know someone who has lost a baby or child in a vehicle accident because they were not buckled up in a car seat or with a safety belt? How many people do you know that allow their kids to stand in the car?
How many of you have SEEN what it looks like when a child has gone through a windscreen, if you have - you know you never want to ever again! Let's give children the right to live a whole life..
People have got so accustomed to the luxury of driving their (safe) cars, that they have become less aware of their own safety by driving continuously faster & more recklessly. They might be able to afford a speeding or reckless driving fines but what none of us can afford is the huge loss of childrens' lives which have occurred over many years. Children are allowed to stand on the back seat (sometimes even on the front seat!), they are not harnassed in in any way - should the driver have to apply brakes - which happens all the times - the child will either go through the windscreen & be killed or be very seriously injured / killed in the vehicle itself.
Please read this and forward it on, YOU could save a child's life TODAY!
LEGISLATION NEEDS TO BE PUT IN PLACE (AND ENFORCED) - TO SEVERELY FINE ANY DRIVER WHO DOESN'T ENSURE THE CHILD'S RIGHT TO L-I-F-E BY HAVING THEM SEATED WITH A GOVERNMENT APPROVED SAFETY BELT OR WITHIN AN SABS SAFETY SEAT.
LET'S ALL STOP THE SENSELESS MAIMING AND KILLING OF OUR PRECIOUS LITTLE CHILDREN BY STUPID PARENTS / DRIVERS WHO SHOW NO LOVE BY LETTING THEIR CHILDREN DO AS THEY PLEASE IN A VEHICLE TRAVELLING AT DANGEROUS SPEEDS - AN ACCIDENT AT JUST 60K/PH IS ENOUGH TO KILL YOU!
