Child Passenger Safety Week is Sept. 18-24

Proper use of the correct size car seat -  when installed in the back seat only - makes a big  difference in keeping a child safe.

  • Car seats reduce children's risk for injury by 71–82% compared with seat belt use alone.

  • Booster seats reduce the risk for serious injury by 45% for children ages 4–8 compared with seat belt use alone.

  • Seat belt use reduces the risk for death and serious injury by about half for older children and adults.

A child's age and size determine which size/type seat will be safest. Use a rear-facing car seat from birth until your child reaches the seat's maximum weight and size. After your child outgrows a rear-facing seat, use a forward-facing car seat until at least age 5. Then, use a booster seat until your child’s height allows a seat belt to fit properly. 

Use the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration online tool to help you find the correct safety seat for your child.
