In the U.S. at least fifty children are being backed over by vehicles EVERY week. Forty-eight (48) are treated in hospital emergency rooms and at least two (2) children are fatally injured every WEEK. We are not sure what the figures for the UK are at the current time but even 1 death is one too many!

- The predominant age of victims is one year olds. (12-23 months)
