CPS Week 2013

Welcome to Child Passenger Safety Week 2013.

This year’s theme is “Right Seat—Buckled Tight!” The theme draws attention to the importance of selecting the correct child restraints (rear-facing, forward-facing, booster, seat belt) for the child, based on age and size, and properly securing children. Although parents may try hard to safely restrain their children, nationally, three out of four kids are not as secure in the car as they could be because their car seats are not being used correctly (NHTSA). Research has found that although parents constantly worry about their children’s safety, car crashes are usually not on their radar as a safety threat.

 

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.
