9. The Basics of Traffic Safety. If You Have Given a Child over 3 Permission to Play Outside, Take the Following Actions

a. Instruct the child to play out of the street and driveway.

b. Instruct the child to play with balls in the yard away from the street. Tell the child to come and get you if the ball should go into street, and emphasize that a new ball can be obtained if something happens to the one in use.

c. If you give young children permission to play outside alone, be sure to check the child's activity every 15 minutes.
