Child Passenger Safety Week, September 16 to 22, is a great time to remember that car crashes are the number one killer of children between the ages of 1 to 12 years old in the United States.
Do you know how to protect your kids in the car?
Of course, the best protection is for them to be in the right seat, used in the right way, at the right time. Whether that means using a car seat, booster seat, or seat belts, etc., make sure your kids ride safely and that you help them establish good habits that will last the rest of their lives.
Is your child in the right seat? Ask your pediatrician if you aren't sure. Or visit a child car seat inspection station on National Seat Check Saturday for more help keeping your kids safe in the car.
