DRIVE WAY SAFE
Five New Zealand children a year are killed after being run over in the driveway
Every two weeks a child is hospitalised with serious injuries from being hit by cars in driveways
A quarter of child pedestrians who end up in hospital are run over in their own driveway
Most children injured in driveway incidents are toddlers, aged about two years old
The driver is usually a close family member.
