Driving is among the riskiest activities you do on a daily basis, but – unlike other things you avoid while pregnant – it is a necessity for personal and professional reasons.

According to Safe Ride 4 Kids, an organization dedicated to preventing injuries and deaths to children in auto collisions:
- Automobile collisions are the single largest cause of death for pregnant mothers; and,
- Motor vehicle accidents are the top cause of traumatic fetal mortality.
