Every year, thousands of children are killed or seriously injured because a driver backing up didn’t see them. A backover incident typically takes place when a car is backing out of a driveway or parking space.
Kids and Car Safety’s (formerly KidsAndCars.org) unique data collection, research, and analysis have identified emerging trends in how children and pets are being injured or killed in nontraffic vehicle-related incidents. This early detection system has enabled Kids and Car Safety (KACS) to measure the significance of risks that have been historically unrecognized and successfully implement campaigns and Federal regulations to reduce and even eliminate those risks.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The data below vastly underestimates the true magnitude of nontraffic fatal incidents involving children. The data represents the incidents Kids and Car Safety has documented involving children < 14 years of age. More detailed data available upon request.
