Child Passenger Safety Week: September 17-23, 2017
National Seat Check Saturday: September 23, 2017
Every 33 seconds, one child under the age of 13 is involved in a crash. Many times deaths and injuries can be prevented by proper use of car seats, boosters, and seat belts.
For children ages 1 to 13, motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death. In 2014, an average of three children were killed and 458 injured every day while riding in cars, SUVs, pickups, and vans. Let's work together to help spread the word about child passenger safety, and help parents and caregivers choose and use #TheRightSeat.
