Child Passenger Safety

Every year, CDC’s Injury Center celebrates Child Passenger Safety Week to raise awareness about the importance of always properly buckling children to keep them as safe as possible on the road.

In the United States, motor vehicle–related injuries are a leading cause of death among children. Always buckling children in age- and size-appropriate car seats, booster seats, and seat belts reduces the risk of serious and fatal injuries by more than half. Children are safest when car seats and booster seats are used correctly. But, did you know that almost half of car seats and booster seats (46%) are not used correctly?

To help keep kids safe, CDC’s Injury Center has developed resources for parents, caregivers, and health care professionals that show how to buckle children the right way in the right seat and how to avoid the most common mistakes.

Remember, always buckle children aged 12 and under in the back seat!

Join us by selecting “Support with Facebook or “Support with Twitter” and your account will post this one-time message on 9/18 at 12:00 p.m. EST to spread the word about child passenger safety.
