Slow Down and Care for Your Precious Cargo! Child Passenger Safety Week
I understand that life can get busy and we are always in a rush to get somewhere or get something done. However, protecting our family must be our utmost priority that requires we slow down, take our time and make sure our babies’ car seats are properly installed.
September is Child Passenger Safety Week and Britax, an industry leader in safety and quality, wants to make sure we take the time to ensure our precious cargo, our children, are safely riding in the car.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, every 33 seconds a child under the age of 13 is involved in a crash. Of those children ages 8 and under who died in a vehicle crash in 2014, 26% were not restrained by an age-appropriate device such as an infant seat, booster seat or seat belt.
WOAW! These statistics are alarming!
To think that the death of a child could have been prevented by simply using and correctly installing the appropriate gear is troubling. NO child has control over where he is buckled-up, it is up to parents to slow down, take the time to check each car seat and that way protect their family.
