Almost all dogs enjoy taking rides in automobiles. But if owners are not careful, this can end up to be a dangerous proposition for both the canine and the driver. Have you seen those people driving their cars down the road with her small dogs sitting right in their lap? Nothing could be more dangerous for both the dog and the person. Do these people not realize what would happen should they slam on the brakes or if they had to make a sudden defensive driving move with the steering wheel? The dog could be instantly killed in even a slight collision or if the airbags deployed if he or she is sitting on the lap of the driver.
This final stage is where good car riding habits will start and remain with children forever. It is important to always remind the child that they need to buckle up each and every time. As a parent setting a good example, you should also buckle up on every ride, thereby providing a good influence on your child’s future car riding habits. A child can start using a seatbelts alone once they turn 8 years old or weigh over 80 pounds or are taller than 4 feet 9 inches tall.
If you are thrown in the trunk of a car, kick out the back taillights and stick your arm out of the hole and wave it around. The driver won’t see you, but other people on the road will.
Airbag s are life-saving devices for adults, but they are dangerous for children. Children should sit in the backseat until they are 13. Even if you are able to turn the front Inflatable Foot Darts off, the safest place for a child is in the back.
Another point to consider is that legislation is often outdated before it is even introduced. The current expression in California is that sixty years old is the new forty. In other words, with exercise, good health care, exercise, and a lucky dip in the gene pool, we should expect to remain active longer. At the Whistler/Blackcomb Ski School, we have quite a few full time pros in their seventies, and a few in their eighties. Are we going to discriminate against the future’s active one hundred and ten year olds with laws that are at least that far behind the times?
The vehicle you drive can save your life. Small cars have smaller crumple zones. I know, personally, gas prices high or low, I want the biggest vehicle I can handle. Being in a large car has saved my life and each time I upgraded to even larger cars. I now have a white Suburban. With a push bar. The push bar gives me a few more inches, prevents some of the damage a front end collision would incur and makes me feel safer. A light colored or white car is far more visible than a dark or black car. Especially at dusk or at night.
