If you love kids make them safe in the car

I saw something very sweet in Joburg traffic last week.

I saw something very sweet in Joburg traffic last week.

A man in a car, either a granddad or dad, was showing a little boy a lot of affection. He must love the little one very much - but not enough to save the child's life.

You see, the child was standing between the front seats of the car. If the man truly loved the child he would have strapped the child into a child's seat.

Even slow-moving traffic collisions can cause the death of a child who is not strapped in properly. Mummy's lap is not safe either. Please love kids properly by strapping them in in the back of a vehicle, where they are safer.
