CPS Week 2014

Welcome to Child Passenger Safety Week 2014.

This year’s theme is “Right Seat—Buckled Tight!” The theme draws attention to the importance of correctly using the proper child restraints (rear-facing, forward-facing, booster, seat belt) for the child, based on age and size, and properly securing children. In a recent study conducted by NHTSA, 90% of parents said that they were "confident" or "very" confident that their car seat was installed correctly and their child was seated correctly. Unfortunately, statistics show that nationally three out of 4 children are not as secure in the car they could be because their car seats are not being used correctly (NHTSA).

 The PA Traffic Injury Prevention Project and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation are committed to working closely with our partners and safety advocates to reach the goal of educating parents and caregivers about best practice recommendations for the correct selection and use of car seats, booster seats and seat belts when traveling with children.
