The Importance of Child Car Seat Safety
Child car seat safety is incredibly important. According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: motor vehicle injuries are a leading cause of preventable death among children in the United States. The CDC also reports there are many children who are riding completely unrestrained. If a parent drives unrestrained without a seatbelt, almost 40% of children are also riding unrestrained. This statistic shows parents should be a good example to your child(ren) by always remembering to buckle up too.
Parents should ensure children are properly restrained and safe whilst in the car, but parents should also do the same. Wearing a seatbelt is proven to increase chances of survival in the case you’re involved in a car accident. That fact shows the importance of setting a good example for your child(ren). Children should be taught that he or she should also buckle up every time. This will increase the likelihood that they will keep wearing one once they’re old enough to be driving themselves.
