We give a hearty thumbs-up to LiftMaster for publishing this great little garage door safety coloring book on their website. Almost everyone has a garage door opener, yet we often forget that when used incorrectly they can hurt children, pets, and, yes, your car.
Some of the points made in the coloring book:
- “Garages are for cars… not for kids.”
- “When you play, stay out of the way.”
- “Grownups park in the garage… Kids play in the yard.”
- and most importantly of all, “You can’t win a race with the garage door.”
Thanks to LiftMaster for thinking of kids and pets. Now who’ll step up to make a garage door safety drinking game to keep adults from closing the door on their Hummers?
Seriously, though, if you have kids and a garage door opener, you might want to grab a copy. They’re free.
