Emer-G-Med paramedics witness numerous accidents where children are seriously injured or killed as a result of not being safely strapped in a child seat or seatbelts. This past weekend a 25 month old boy was ejected from a vehicle after it was involved in a rollover. Sadly the boy succumbed to his injures on impact and there was nothing paramedics could do to save him.

DON'T WEAR HEADSETS. Use your ears to be aware of your surroundings. Using headphones, you lose the use of an important sense: your hearing.
During very wet weather motorists are urged to keep safe by following these simple safety tips:
• Constantly be on the look out for suspicious looking people and be wary of people standing at traffic lights and intersections.
• Lock all your doors and close the windows.
• Obey the rules of the road and carry you drivers license with you.
• Plan the route to your holiday destination and give yourself enough time to reach the destination
