YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT . . .
AND STYLES OF DRIVEWAY SAFETY ITEMS
These items help alert cars that children are at play. They range
in design from a bright, yellow tripod sign to a mesh or plastic style barrier
that spans the entire width of your driveway. The
barrier style blocks off an entire area to help prevent cars from entering,
and to help keep children from riding their bikes outside the driveway or from
chasing a ball into the street. Some styles are more durable than others and
provide a sturdier barrier. Some are easier to set up and take down at the end
of the day.
