Child Safety Advocates Differ on Best Way to Prevent Backovers


Debate among child safe­ty advo­cates about the best way to pre­vent back­over acci­dents is one of edu­ca­tion vs tech­nol­o­gy. Stud­ies found that sys­tems using sen­sors and warn­ing beep­ers and those with cam­eras had lit­tle effect on whether par­tic­i­pants struck unex­pect­ed obsta­cles; some safe­ty advo­cates say edu­ca­tion is the answer.
