Time Magazine Features a Study on Grandparents, Children and Cars
A recent study done by The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia suggests children may be safer when driven by a grandparent than by a parent. Researchers analyzed insurance-claims data from State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance, and found that children were half as likely to be injured if a grandparent was driving the vehicle during a crash. TIME Magazine examined this research and interviewed lead author Frederick Henretig, M.D. an attending Emergency Physician at CHOP and grandfather to two girls. This novel study was also highlighted by many local and national television outlets.
