Getting safety information and car seat instructions to parents and caregivers are crucial to saving young lives. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), child safety seats reduce the risk of fatal injury by 71 percent for infants and by 54 percent for toddlers in passenger vehicles. Car and booster seats are one of the most important safety devices children use on a daily basis. According to the NHTSA, car fatalities are the leading cause of death for children 1 to 13 years old. Checked often, car and booster seats save lives.
Car seat inspections aim to ensure all parents and caregivers understand how to choose an appropriate seat for the child’s age and size and how to install the seat correctly. Caregivers will be educated on how to select a child restraint that will fit their child, fit their vehicle, and be used correctly every time.
