CHOP Docs Say Let Nana Drive

A new study shows that kids are safer in accidents if a grandparent was driving

Children involved in car accidents are safer if a grandparent was behind the wheel. According to a study conducted by research doctors at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, the odds of the child involved being hurt in that type of accident is half of the chances an injury occurs if a parent is driving. The Scoop thinks that might have something to do with the size of their cars, speed of their travel and proximity to the home—but, safer is safer—so he’ll take shotgun while Nana drives getaway.
