Child Passenger Safety Week – September 16-22, 2012

Posted by Marianne Frederick

It’s Child Passenger Safety Week, and we think this is a great opportunity to check to make sure your children’s booster seats are properly installed in the vehicle in which you transport your children and that you are using the correct vehicle restraints.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is encouraging parents to take advantage of the free booster seat checks which may be offered in your communities this week by organizations like the local Sheriff’s Department or the local SafeKids Coalition near you!

You can visit SaferCar.gov for guidelines and “how-to” videos on car seat belt use and installation.   If you have questions about car seats, you may want to participate in a Live Twitter Question and Answer session with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s safety experts, on Wednesday September 19 from 2 p.m. until 3 p.m. (EDT).  You can follow and send questions to @NHTSAgov   Twitter.com/NHTSAgov  Hashtag: #therightseat.
