Any good mom or dad wants to keep their child safe, but many parents are unintentionally putting them in danger.
A study from Safe Kids Worldwide shows 90 percent of parents move a child from a booster seat to a seat belt too soon. Motor vehicle crashes are the second-leading cause of death for children ages 4 to 10, many of which could have been prevented if the proper restraints were used.
Child Passenger Safety Week is Sept. 18-24. If you’d like to make sure your child’s car/booster seat is installed correctly, here’s a statewide map of safety check locations.
