I’m not called Crash Test Mummy for nothing. I have 3 car crashes to my name. Not something I’m proud of, and also not something I thought of much when I became a parent.
Approximately 500 children are killed or injured each year on Australian roads.
And far too many adults too. It scares the hell out of me. Even if my driving is meticulous, some idiot could still end it all for us.
Which is why I’ve decided to put my efforts into promoting car, driver and passenger safety. It is my chosen cause and is not affiliated with any one organisation. It’s just a message I’m keen to get out there so we can bring that number down.
Introducing Crash Safe
My main objective is to get parents to think about the question:
“How Crash Safe are you?”
Crash Safe is my own initiative, but I will at times work with relevant companies and organisations to bring you information and products that will help keep your families safe on the roads.
I made this video. Please watch it because it makes a very important point. Hopefully it will make you think. Or you can at least rate my crash out of 5.
Coming up this week I have some great giveaways with
Britax Safe-n-Sound child restraints and Tom Tom, so keep an eye out for the next posts.
Have you checked the safety rating of your car?
Linking up with Jess from Essentially Jess for IBOT
Three great giveaways ending today! Check them out over at Crash Test Mummies!
Plus a few more days for a chance to win a family ground pass to the Australian Open 2012
