It is not because of the lack of advice, warnings and campaigns that children continue to die in car accidents because they are not wearing their seat belts. It will be for the lack of consciousness, care or care of their families. I think that if the children are not protected in the car, that is the responsibility of the parents or of whoever is driving them. It is very clear by now that the Wearing a seat belt reduces infant mortality.
Although many may think that the new campaign of the General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) is unfortunate and that it devalues the figure and competence of parents, I believe that in the case of children, every effort is valid as long as the children have more safety and protection. Honestly, I cannot understand why many children they still do not use safety devices when they go by car. Prevention measures are more than widespread. Every year, at my daughter's school, there are talks about it. Children, no matter how young they are, already know that they must use a belt. What is missing so that parents also know and comply with it?
The campaign To harm a child, you don't have to put your hand on him, just not put a belt on him, it has been labeled harshly by some family associations. It is certainly striking, controversial and can hurt the sensibilities and feelings of many families. But it leaves no doubt that children are the most vulnerable passengers in any impact. They are the ones who depend directly on the decisions made by the adults around them. Statistics confirm the need to be alerted in favor of seat belts for children, as its use reduces the risk of death by half In case of an accident.
One in four children died in traffic accidents in 2008 because they were not wearing a seat belt. From January to October, 159 children from 0 to 13 years of age have died, being that the fourth did not carry any device of security. In Spain, traffic accidents are the main cause of infant mortality.
On holidays, when many families decide to go on a trip, is when more accidents occur. That is why we have decided to insist that the use of seat belts reduces infant mortality.
