‘SPOT THE TOT’ before backing up

“Spot the Tot” is a program sponsored by Primary Children’s Hospital. Its aim is to help prevent a young child from being injured or killed by someone backing up a car.

Years ago, I was heartbroken when one of my former law partners accidentally backed over and killed one of his small children on their way to church. Since that time, I have been deeply concerned about this issue and want to help spread the word about the “Spot the Tot” effort.

Primary Children’s Hospital’s “Spot the Tot” program has developed a simple handout explaining ways to prevent this tragedy and includes a reminder sticker. The handout is printed in English on one side and in Spanish on the other side.

The sticker, (which contains the words SPOT THE TOT and a picture of a young child) is bright yellow and is placed on the inside of the driver’s side window. The driver will see the sticker each and every time he or she enters the car and is reminded to check behind the vehicle before backing out.

I have obtained a large number of these stickers and desire to distribute them as widely as possible. I will be giving out these “Spot the Tot” handouts and stickers at an Open House at my home office at 493 W. 400 North in Tooele on Dec. 13 from 3-7 p.m. Please feel free to drop by and get one for each of your vehicles. Let’s all make an effort to “Spot the Tot” and save lives!
