School dismissal a dangerous time for kids getting hit by cars
from HealthDay News
Children are at greatest risk of being hit by a car at the end of the school day, as well as in the evening, a new study finds. One expert wasn't surprised by the findings. The after-school hours are "times when adult supervision may not be ideal," said Dr. Robert Glatter, an emergency physician at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. "Having increased police awareness and school-sponsored safety patrols available when afternoon caregivers cannot be present may help to reduce the risk," said Glatter, who was not involved in the new research.
