At least, that's what I'd tell you if you backed your car over a child.

And apparently, it happens more often than you'd think:

Every week in the United States at least 50 children are backed over in driveways or parking lots.

What??? That means that 7 times a day, someone backs up over a child.

That's incredible. I'm dumbfounded. Speechless, even.

Are there any actuaries out there who can verify this statistic? Is it just a mere case of FUD being used to get gullible parents to attend a seminar?
