Monograph 18 Driveway deaths of child pedestrians

Summary

Every year, a number of young children in Australia are killed as a result of low-speed impact with a motor vehicle, often as a consequence of a parent or family friend unwittingly driving a motor vehicle over a child in their yard or driveway. These collisions have a devastating and lasting impact on the whole family. Prevention of driveway deaths and injuries requires an understanding of their circumstances and causal factors and increased public awareness.

This monograph presents a summary of driveway deaths of child pedestrians during the period 1996–2001. It incorporates data from earlier Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) published research covering the period 1996–1998.
