Buckling up the right way on every ride is the single most important thing a family can do to stay safe in the car. But finding the safest way for each member of the family to ride can be confusing if you don’t have the right information. Below you can find the information you need to keep your kids safe.
Research on the effectiveness of child safety seats has found them to reduce fatal injury by 72 percent for infants younger than 1 year of age and by 54 percent for toddlers ages 1-4. Children ages 2-6 years old in child safety seats (including child restraints and belt positioning booster seats) are approximately 28 percent less likely to receive a fatal injury than those using safety belts alone.
