"Inattentive driving is the num- berone contributing cause for all crashes in the First State," said Cindy; Genau, community traffic safety program educator for Co- operative Extension at the Univer- sity of Delaware. "Make the holi- days a truly happy time to be with family and friends by staying alert to other drivers and taking safety precautions to ensure a safe trip."

If a vehi- cle is equipped with a passenger- side airbag, require children to ride in the back seat, properly se- cured in age-appropriate safety re- straints. "Don't be one of those drivers who needlessly put their chil- said. "Six out of 10 children who die in crashes are not bucHed up and/or not in child car seats." According to Genau, Delaware law enforcement officers were out in full force during the Thanksgiv- ing holiday, issuing tickets to mo- torists who fail to wear seat belts and who do not confine small children in proper seats. Road checks were also con- ducted to arrest drunk drivers, she adds. "Forty-two percent of all fatal crashes in Delaware last year were alcohol-related. Even moderate consumption of wine or beer im- pairs a driver's ability to make proper decisions on the road." Safe driving also means being prepared for vehicle emergencies. "Inspect your car before you leave on a lengthy road trip. Make sure it is operating properly," Genau gauge and windshield wiper flu- id."
