preventing child abuse and creating safe school environments
it's national child passenger safety week!
This week (Sept 13-19, 2015) is National Child Passenger Safety Week (#ChildPassengerSafetyWeek), and car crashes are a leading cause of death for children. While car seats, booster seats, and seat belts save lives, it is critical that they are chosen correctly, installed correctly, and used correctly.
Help spread the word with the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration's graphics below and the hashtags #ChildPassengerSafetyWeek and #therightseat. Most parents are confident they have correctly installed their child's car seat, but in most cases (59%), the seat has not been installed correctly.
To see whether you are using the right seat for your child, visit the NHTSA's website.
