Motor vehicle crashes are
the number one cause of death of children over the age of six months in
the United States. The proper use of child car seats is one of the
simplest and most effective methods available for protecting the lives
of our young children in the event of a motor vehicle crash.
Please make sure that children are properly protected while traveling in
a motor vehicle. Only the correct use of child car seats will offer the
protection your child needs.
Child safety seat
checkpoints routinely discover that eight out of ten children are not
properly restrained in appropriate child safety seats or belt systems.
Improper installation of child safety seats and/or misuse of the seats
are the most common problems found.
