Will collect nonTraffic and nonCrash tragedy
This means that children who are knocked down in the driveway, suffocated in the trunk, or trapped in the power window become official statistics, which may help to repair dangerous equipment or manufacturing methods.
In addition, NHTSA will look for ways to reduce accidents that cause hundreds of children to die or be injured each year, not to mention all inlethal run-ins.
Finally, by 2007, all vehicles must have electric window switches that can only be pulled out or pulled out, which reduces the risk of a child tilting out of the window and accidentally pressing or switching the switch, squeeze his or her head, neck, or limbs.

On August, the minister of the Accident Compensation Commission issued the New Zealand drowning strategy, which was called a "milestone ".
An average of 130 people drowned in New Zealand each year.

The highest drowning rate among young people in New Zealand (ages 1–14)
Compared with other OECD countries
According to a recent report issued by the children's youth and mortality review committee (CYMRC)

Many New Zealanders were killed in swimming pools, bathtubs and buckets.

According to the new statistics, the number of deaths on Swiss roads has decreased due to the new drunk driving law, and the new drunk driving law has a real impact on road safety.
The Swiss accident prevention agency said that in the first half of 2005, the number of road deaths in the country fell by 22% compared with the same period in 2004.
To explain this improvement, experts noted that recent changes have taken place in the law, reducing the legal blood alcohol limit for driving from 0.
8 parts per 1000 to 0. 5.
New restrictions began in January 1, 2005.

NHTSA released a new 219-page legal study on bicycle helmets in September.
The study was done by independent researcher Carol Strobel.
She surveyed six communities that passed various helmet laws, including one that was later abolished.
The study analyzed the findings of 20 pages entitled "analysis, providing a great deal of detail if you need it.
Some of the topics that come up are: the main stakeholders who enact the law are usually emergency medical professionals, pediatricians and alliances focused on child safety, injury prevention, cycling and safety.
On this issue, the bicycle community sometimes splits and law enforcement may "make", although it is often not deeply involved"or-break" role.
Often, citations issued under these laws are rare and are not a priority for law enforcement agencies.
Although laws may be rarely enforced, they are seen as valuable levers (
Especially parents)
Increase the use of bicycle helmets.
The evolving role of the bike and bike community in the changing traffic mix will impact the strategies, issues and components involved in future bike safety efforts.
In order to improve the effectiveness of the law, studies have shown that law must be given priority in law enforcement;
If the law is not enforced, it will lose its effectiveness; on-
Efforts need to be made in education and awareness, similar to efforts to support the law on seat belts;
Supporters should publicize the necessity of the law to the news media;
The public needs to be better educated on harm physics;
People who implement the law must "constantly pass on information about the use of bicycle helmets and the law ".
The study report can be accessed through the concussion prevention tool of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
A new multimedia education kit has been launched to protect young athletes from serious but often underestimated health threats --concussion.
Concussion is a type of brain injury (TBI)
Because the head is hit or shaken slightly to severe, it can disrupt the way the brain works properly.
There are more than 300 TBIs related to sports and entertainment in the United States every year.
The initiative, called "head up: concussion in high school sports", includes information on preventing concussion and identifying symptoms, as well as measures taken immediately when athletes show signs of concussion.
For more information on the kit, visit law makers in Arkansas, Nevada, North Dakota, and Texas to limit car crash data laws to limit information collected by who can use the event data recorder (EDRs)
It records the speed of the car in the accident and the reaction of the seat belt, brake and airbag.
The new law is intended to protect the owner's privacy by requiring the owner's permission or a court order to issue EDR data to law enforcement or insurance companies.
Law makers across the United States are increasingly worried about the abuse of EDR data.
At present, 15% of cars on American roads have installed these devices, and as many as 90% of models installed them in 2004.
