It may seem counterintuitive at first but being prepared for the worst situations will put you at ease. Your ability to help in an emergency situation could determine your childrens survival. It is important to stay calm in these situations - you must first analyze the situation with questions that can aid the ambulance, is the child awake? Can the child talk to you? Is the child breathing? There are then several actions you can take depending on the emergency. To take a first aid course please contact your local Red Cross or St Johns Ambulance.

Through education and physical boundaries, we could prevent the rate of these cases, there are a bunch of ways to ensure driveway safety when building your family home. Have a look at your property’s design, is your childrens play area separated from the driveway? Does your driveway exit into common areas where children might play? If you are building a driveway consider good sightlines, clear visibility and fencing around outdoor play areas.

I never got in my car before checking where every child was and making sure an adult was responsible for them. Now I no longer reverse out of the drive. I started reversing up our drive a few years ago and would even sit in the car at the gate and ring my husband so he could keep an eye on our children before I reversed up the driveway - slowly.

I don’t think any parent would consciously allow their child to play on a driveway. But as a parent, I know that children can slip away unexpectedly. It is the responsibility of the driver of the car to make sure that the driveway is empty and to drive carefully. Please don’t automatically blame the parents when a tragedy happens.

Modern cars are fitted with sensors in their bumper that sound a progressively stronger beep as you back up and encounter obstacles. There are also wireless versions of backing cameras that can be mounted in the licence plate and connected via the backing lights to come on automatically as you back up. Both can be fitted relatively easily, the latter connects via an Android mobile phone app to your dash mounted phone removing a need for tricky and expensive wiring. It works day and night. Cost about $50.

I have a question about drive way safety. I haven't yet had answered. At what age do children have awareness to move themselves away from a vehicle on a driveway. Or to watch out for one ?.

When my daughter was young, I treated everyone on the road or behind the wheel of a car as a homicidal maniac, and every child as having a death wish. It worked, she grew up in one piece.

in my day when any one leaving normally have my wee ones near me in my arms and whose dumb enough to let a wee one play in the drive

Drivers responsibility to check for kids or pets. Please do it

What an amazing man you have Lisa.

Let your kid play on a drive way. That is not looking after them.

We were told as kids the driveway is for cars not a play area.. Parental responsibility

Did you know cyclists in the 13–17 and 18–44-year-old age groups appear to be more at risk of being in a collision with a motor vehicle than younger or older cyclists? These cyclists tend to ride at peak times and may also ride in more dangerous traffic conditions like major cities or the open road. Make sure your family has learnt the rules of the road before riding on the road as well as the obvious rules like, ALWAYS WEAR A HELMET and WEAR SHOES! Be alert, be bright and dont ride at night!

Please do not be embarrassed to have a chat with kids who may not have their helmets or protective gear on correctly or not at all. Remember your words may save a life. Parents also please lead by example.

Definitely, my son had a bike accident few weeks ago. Broke his foot in several places. Up to that point he was refusing to wear a helmet, that day he did. An if he hadn't it would have been so different. He fits in the first age group. Wearing a helmet is so important.

Be aware that cycle helmets are only there to protect the wearer from relatively minor bumps and abrasions. In the event of a moderate to severe impact very few cycle helmets will offer any meaningful protection. In fact putting a helmet on a child with oversimplistic advice such as "It will keep you safe etc" is setting a dangerous misnomer in place for both kiddies and their parents. The FACTS are that LVT (Light Vulnerable Traffic) such as pedestrians, cyclists. Scooterists etc are in a very high risk environment when competing with regular road traffic. Far better for authorizes to focus on the physical separation of cyclists etc from much heavier and faster traffic.

Don't ride at night? I often finish work after midnight, how do you expect me to get home?

Believe it or not this needs to be said, teach your kids to open their eyes and not run people over while driving too

"Don't ride at night"?!?! Following this "advice" would mean anyone finishing work at 5:30pm shouldn't ride to work during May/June/July?!?!

Don't ride at night? Go away, you pillocks.

Would you be able to level the playing field by comparing other forms of transport? Pedestrians, scooter users, car, bus and lorry incident statistics for age and time of day. Perhaps, it would be interesting to bring in incidents involving police vehicles. Where I am driving towards is, however well intentioned the advice, it needs to be viewed in context. My take, I have the best helmet I can afford, always have footwear on and use daytime lights. It doesn't stop the fact that for every 50km I ride there is an opportunity to be going to hospital assisted by some one else using the road. Where I often ride I loved the police check point in the cycle lane forcing all those on bikes to move into the main traffic flow. So, you may give good advice but the boots on the ground who represent you are perhaps undermining your safety message.

So...13 to 44 you say sweet im safe hic

Is wearing shoes actually a rule? I don't remember seeing that in the road code or legislation 🤔 Let's not forget that wearing a helmet doesn't reduce the likelihood of crashes, which are overwhelmingly caused by larger vehicle drivers. Or that other popular activities, like rugby, have significantly higher head injury rates than cycling. Cycling is a safe activity which, if cyclists weren't put in danger by others, should not require PPE. I hope the Police Managers Guild also lobbies road controlling authorities to reduce traffic volumes, reduce speeds and provide separate, protected infrastructure for vulnerable road users - as all of these things have considerably greater safety benefits than wearing a helmet.

Cycling should be banned, it’s dangerous and dozens die every year unnecessarily

Control freaks with false servers

I gave up drinking completely a while ago ....it was never my "drug of choice" but it was however intrinsically linked to almost every court case, broken heart and regret in my life ....I decided to quit drinking alcohol after looking around at the destruction caused in our homes and communities by alcohol and the fact that I know I don't like who I become and the choices I make when I drink ....some people can drink responsibly.....many can not ..... every single town in New Zealand on almost any day or night of the week something negative resulting from alcohol consumption is happening....we have a really ingrained culture of drinking to excess , binge drinking and it shows in our social harm and crime stats .... homicides, assaults, sexual assaults, domestic violence, poverty ,child abuse , suicide , homelessness, mental health ....all linked to alcohol in many cases.....sure a lot of this is also the same with methamphetamine , synthetic cannabis etc and although these are somewhat freely available in our communities.... alcohol is legal ....you can buy a box of beer or a cask of wine at the supermarket and no one bats an eyelid.....if you think you need help ....you do !!....I'm not anti alcohol....I bought my brother a few beers just last week as a thank you for helping me with something....he's a responsible drinker and very occasionally at that ....but on the whole it's something we need to look at as a nation 🤗❤️🙂

I've been sober 5 years alcohol took hold of me at 10 years old, its the worst drug on the planet I pity anyone who has a problem with it, when I drank it ALWAYS ended in either hand cuffs or am ambulance ride or both it cost me everything but praise the Lord im sober now by his grace and mercy

Tis sad when your local bar know your an alcoholic, yet they serve you anyway 🤮

police in bed with the Alcohol industry ,just look at the DIC penalties ,

the police should ask this question to their own heavy drinking culture ,,,

Wow good on you you should be so proud it's great you learnt by your mistakes your s ledgend Eden Winston

Is that including or excluding police canteens?

Govt sponsored as well as the many Politicians who has invested heavily in this drug -

Mind your business kill joy.

No probs bar covid shut outs but good stocks at home and nearby shops means happy happy joy joy

40-50%, i think it's alot higher and the people surveyed just lied to the police officers conducted the study as you do anytime anyone in a police uniform asks you about your drinking.

Try a way less harmfull substitute. Try cannabis. Vote yes.

Not rocket science.

Says more about life in NZ, why are people drinking so much, what are they trying to blur away or forget

NOW IS A GOOD TIME GET RID OF ALL!!!! OFF LICENSES!! AND CLOSE PUBS AT 11pm!! AND NIGHT CLUBS AT MIDNIGHT!! BOTTLE STORES ARE ONLY!!! ATTACHED TO THE LOCAL PUB!! AND CANCEL ALL SUPERMARKET OFF LICENSES TO!! The few have stuffed it up for the rest

Thats like saying your more likely to get wet when its raining

If the cannabis referendum passes, people will have a choice of substance. At the moment alcohol is the only legal mind altering substance so it isn't surprising it is abused like it is. It will be better to see people smoking, relaxing and not drinking and rowdy. Yeah for sure some will use both together but that seems to often result in sleep.

Let's be honest , after 2 glasses , Alcohol is a poison .

I only drink one or 2 times a year now, and when I do I do a good job, no problems!

1312, mind yr own cunt

Did Mike Bush initiate this?
