In the event of a crash, your seat belt can save your life. If your child is in a crash, it’s the proper buckling of him or her into the correct child safety seat that could save their life. To draw awareness to child safety and highlight the proper type of child safety seats, National Seat Check Saturday 2014 is September 20th.
Every year in the USA, motor vehicle crashes lead the way as the cause of death for children between the ages of 1 to 12. In 2010 alone, the NHTSA noted that an average of 2 children were involved in a fatal crash every single day. 325 children were also injured on a daily basis, and this number as well as the fatality rate could be drastically reduced if the correct child safety seats were used.
Take some time this to ensure your child is secure in their car seat. Visit an Inspection Station where a certified technician will inspect your car seat and show you how to install it properly. The steps you take now could save your child’s life in the event of a crash.
