Chil­dren’s safety a pri­or­ity

Zululand Observer - Weekender - - ZO NEWS - Welling­ton Mak­wakwa

TO en­sure the safety of chil­dren on the road, the Road Ac­ci­dent Fund team handed over car seats to moth­ers of new­born ba­bies at Queen Nandi Re­gional Hos­pi­tal in Em­pan­geni on Mon­day.

The pur­pose was to pro­mote safety of chil­dren and lessen fa­tal­i­ties among young chil­dren in car crashes.

Moth­ers were ad­vised on how to pro­tect their chil­dren while trav­el­ling and pro­vided with in­for­ma­tion on how to sub­mit claims af­ter ac­ci­dents.

‘Chil­dren are not al­lowed to be trans­ported in the front seat. Dur­ing ac­ci­dents they can suf­fer ma­jor in­juries if not prop­erly se­cured.

‘We need to talk to other moth­ers and put our chil­dren and their safety first,’ said road safety spe­cial­ist Agnes Mahlangu.

Com­mu­nity mem­bers were also given the op­por­tu­nity to ask ques­tions re­gard­ing their claims.
