We’re teaming up with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in support of Child Passenger Safety Week (September 15 – 21, 2013). Car crashes are still a leading killer of children age 1 to 13. Having your child in the right seat can make all the difference.
Knowing when your child is ready for a new car seat can be confusing. This Saturday is National Seat Check Saturday and a perfect time to get your car seat checked. Find your local event here: safercar.gov/therightseat (English) and safercar.gov/protegidos (Spanish).
