Child Passenger Safety - Know The Facts!
Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among children in the United States. In 2000, motor vehicle crashes took the lives of more than 2,000 child passengers 15 years and younger and injured another 327,500. Of the children fatally injured, more than two-thirds were not in age-appropriate restraints or were completely unrestrained.
Just look at the stats! Seat restraints prevent injury and save lives. We ask everyone to buckle up and be happy you did.
