From local law enforcement agencies, to international child advocacy groups, the mobile channel is now being used with increasing frequency to educate parents and guardians about the importance of child passenger safety.
In addition to SMS and email campaigns filled with tips and suggestions for keeping minors safe, advocates for the well-being of children are also using some of the most effective digital platforms of the modern age to educate and inform in hopes of saving lives.
A new infographic, for example, from Adams Davis P.C — well-respected accident trial attorneys in Salt Lake City, Utah — is sad, but carries a critical message: children should be wearing seat belts (or secured in proper child safety seats) in an automobile.
As the data shows, 33 percent of the children who died in car crashes in 2011 were not buckled up. Two thirds of those killed were riding with a drunk driver.
In 2012, 13,234 children (thirteen of whom died) were involved in car accidents in Utah alone — and this is a big, big country.
