Important information about stroller safety

What are some things to keep in mind about stroller safety? Obviously the first thing for me was to read the instruction manual. Figure out where the brake is and use it if the stroller's unattended. Another thing I found really helpful was jogging; I tend to jog a lot with a stroller. I have a leash that attaches to me and the stroller in the event that something happens, I lost control of it or fall, it doesn't go too far away from me. The other thing that you have to keep in mind is to not weigh the handle down with a ton of shopping bags, which I've seen happen and push that stroller backwards, putting them in a launch position. Personally, I would suggest - My niece was killed a year ago while she was in a stroller. Her mom and her we're going through a crosswalk and a driver backed up recklessly without looking; and it can happen that quick. I think you really need to be aware of your surroundings. You may do everything right and the person may not, and it can happen that quick. It can really change someone's life forever. I know that it's changed our family's life forever. So I think pay attention, slow down.
