According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, almost half of passenger vehicle occupants who were killed in 2014 were unrestrained, or not wearing a safety belt. Many of these deaths were children. Using the correct car seat or booster seat can be a lifesaver. It is important to make sure children are always buckled in an age and size appropriate car seat or booster seat.
One out of four unintentional injury deaths are caused by motor vehicle crashes for children under 13. Proper restraint can reduce the fatalities among children traveling as passenger vehicle occupants. Before an emergency strikes, be prepared with emergency equipment for all weather situations.
Safety starts at home. Teaching safe practices at home will lead to safe practices at work.
