National Child Passenger Safety Week

September 18, 2016 - September 24, 2016

Every 33 seconds, one child under the age of 13 is involved in a crash, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Many times deaths and injuries can be prevented by proper use of car seats, boosters and seat belts.

To generate awareness about child car safety in your community, NHTSA has created a toolkit you can download and get campaign materials to use. Ask: Is Your Child in the Right Car Seat?

Mark these dates:

  • Child Passenger Safety Week: Sept. 18-24, 2016
  • National Seat Check Saturday: Sept. 24, 2016
