September 18th-24th is Child Passenger Safety Week in the Canada, an annual event to raise awareness for car seat safety.
Why is car seat safety so important?
Here are the facts:
- Car crashes are a leading cause of death among children in Canada and the United States.
- Four out of five car seats are not properly installed.
- Car seats reduce the risk of injury by 71-82% and reduce the risk of death by 28% in comparison to seat belts alone.
When it comes to car seat safety, there is no such thing as “overprotective.” Car seats save lives!
