Keep Kids Away From Tractors - National Campaign

A child dies from injuries on a farm an average of once every 3.5 days. The most common situation involves a tractor. “Keep Kids Away from Tractors,” is the unified message of the Childhood Agricultural Safety Network. The campaign urges adults to think twice before allowing children 12-under to operate tractors or ride on them. More information at www.childagsafety.org
