September 21-27 is National Child Passenger Safety Week

Nationwide Push to Make Sure Children Are Properly Secured in Moving Vehicles

September 21-27 is National Child Passenger Safety Week, the yearly campaign to bring public attention to the imperativeness of properly securing all children in appropriate child safety seats, booster seats, or seat belts – no exceptions. The campaign will commence on September 20, 2008, with "Seat Check Saturday" inspection events across the country. English-speaking and Spanish-speaking child passenger safety certified technicians will provide free nationwide child safety seat inspections to help parents and guardians make sure their vehicle’s child safety seats are fittingly sized and properly installed.

All 50 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico have laws requiring that children be restrained in motor vehicles. Child safety seats and booster seats save lives. They offer the best protection for children in the event of a crash. Over the past 30 years, the use of child restraints has saved some 8,325 children’s lives, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
