Joseph Meaney3 years ago
September 18-24 is Child Passenger Safety Week, and the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) is urging the importance of proper car seat and seat belt usage and how it can save your child’s life.
Need to be Used Every Trip, says Transportation Secretary
In an effort to increase awareness of correct car seat usage, the NHTSA says hundreds of safety events are being held this week across the country. Child Passenger Safety Technicians will be available to make sure car seats are properly installed and to educate parents and caregivers about how to register their car seat in case of a recall, says the NHTSA.
A child’s size and age helps determine what kind of car seat is appropriate. Parents can find out how to pick the right car seat by visiting the NHTSA’s car seat safety website.
When not Buckled, Their Safety is in Jeopardy
The NHTSA says the safety of future generations is at risk by not properly restraining children during car rides.
