National Collision Awareness Month

Chief_carseatMarch is National Collision Awareness Month, a valuable time to shine the spotlight on child passenger safety.

• Car crashes are the number one killer of children 1 to 12 years old.

• Motor vehicle traffic death rates for children are higher in the United States than in other high income countries.

• And according to MMWR effective interventions, including child passenger restraint laws (with child safety seat/booster seat coverage through at least age 8 years) and child safety seat distribution plus education programs, can increase restraint use and reduce child motor vehicle deaths.

The Child Passenger Safety Tips and Resource Guide from the AutoPartsWarehouse.com contains the following:

• Car Seat Guidelines by Age (for example, children under two should always ride in a rear facing car seat)

• Child Passenger Safety Tips (from locking down electric window buttons to proper seat belt use)

• Links to key resources on child passenger safety
