One of your primary desires as parents is to keep your children safe. As the world grows ever more stressful, pressure comes from all directions. It is hard to think about every object that may prove harmful to your child when the family is rushing to and from work, day care, grocery shopping or school activities.
Motor vehicle collisions of any kind can be devastating, but those involving large trucks can be especially tragic. These accidents frequently claim lives due to the size of large trucks, and even when victims do not pass away they frequently sustain serious injuries that permanently disrupt their lives. Whether a large truck driver has difficulty slowing down due to the size of their vehicle or they slam into another vehicle at a high rate of speed, these accidents often bring significant consequences in Connecticut and across the U.S. As a result, truck drivers and all other drivers should do what they can to avoid a crash.
Protecting your children is something you do every day as a parent. It should not be something you slack on when it comes to riding in a vehicle. Studies have shown repeatedly that child safety seats save lives. Anytime you put your child in a car, he or she must be in the correct child safety seat based on his or her age and weight. Connecticut law is very specific about these guidelines, and it is your responsibility as a parent to know and understand them.
