6 Days of Road Safety - how parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles & caregivers can keep our kids safe


As many of you know I'm very passionate about child accident prevention.

And as a mum of four children in three years (now aged 5 and under) and journalist, I’m also passionate about spreading awareness.

All parents/grandparents/uncles/aunties and caregivers need to brush up on their knowledge when it comes to the latest advice regarding car seat safety and laws, driveway safety, pedestrian safety and the dangers of leaving children in hot cars.

Some super awesome mummy bloggers & I have teamed up with Kidsafe Queensland​ for the 6 Days of Road Safety campaign THIS WEEK.

Kidsafe Qld has gathered together 5 Queensland mummy blogs to promote a 6 days of road safety campaign, to coincide with UN Global Road Safety Week riding the road safety message home to mums.

Daycare Decisions, MummyWifeMe, Gold Coast Mum, MotherDownUnder and Momani are working together to sign parents and share safety content for the 6 days of safety campaign from May 4th-9th where parents can receive helpful road safety tips and hints for busy mums with young children.

Kidsafe is the leading non-government, not-for-profit charitable organisation, dedicated to preventing unintentional childhood injuries and reducing the resulting deaths and disabilities associated with injuries in children under the age of 15 years.

We’ll be sharing tips relating to:
Day 1: Kids in hot cars
Day 2: Driveway safety
Day 3: Pedestrian safety: stop, look, listen, think
Day 4: Small wheel safety: prams, bikes and scooters
Day 5: Travelling safely in cars: strategies for coping with crying, fighting and long trips
Day 6: Car seat safety: capsules, toddler seats and boosters

And, most importantly, it's crucial that the important tips/reminders are shared to help parents/grandparents/uncles/aunties and caregivers as there’s no room for complacency when it comes to looking after our precious children.

The guidelines, tips and advice available are based on years of research and findings to help us parents/caregivers make better decisions and hopefully do what we can to avoid any tragedies.
