Is Shopping Cart More Dangerous than Terrorism?

From the website:

Every day, parents put their children in shopping carts while they peruse the aisles of the grocery store, but they might be surprised to hear that's not always a great idea.

According to a new study, an estimated 24,000 children were treated in hospitals for shopping cart-related injuries last year. While some are bumps are bruises, some of those injuries actually are fatal.

I'm sure the majority of injuries are from kids that are seated properly, but I get so irritated when I see kids standing up in the basket portion of the cart, or worse yet~standing on the END of the cart, so they can not only FALL but also get run over. How smart is that?

I worked in a grocery store when I was 16 and saw too many clueless parents trying to Darwin their kids by allowing them to stand in the cart. The sound of a child's head hitting the floor is awful...and then the screaming afterward...

I can testify to pulling myself along the fish aisle while riding in a very large cart ... And tipping it over. It was pretty damn scary and embarrassing. The store staff, thought so, anyway. My bad.
