Driveway Child Safety Yard Fence

Updated February 21, 2017

According to the Medical College of Georgia, 1 in every 80 children between the ages of 6 and 12 require hospital care for a bicycle injury every year. One of the worst places for these accidents is the driveway. Stop children from riding their bikes into the road and cars from entering the driveway with a driveway fence.


There are different lengths to span all driveways, most of the options are in a vivid orange to alert people trying to enter your driveway, and they retract for easy entrance.


The retractable driveway fence is meant not only to keep your children off the road, but to also keep cars from entering the driveway while children are playing. It will also help to stop balls from going into the road while your little ones are playing.


The adjustable fence is available from 15 feet up to 30 feet across and 3 feet tall.


This fence is not permanent and will not stop children from walking or riding around the posts and into the road.


The 30-foot not-retractable fence costs around £52, while the 25-foot retractable fence costs around £78. There are a few other options available and all fall within that price range.
