Car Safety - Child Passenger Safety
Each year in New York, more than 4,500 kids up to age 8 are treated at hospitals for injuries from a motor vehicle crash. Most parents believe their children are safe in the car, yet 75 percent of kids are riding at risk because their car seats are not being used correctly. Using a safety seat the right way reduces the risk of child passenger fatalities by 71 percent and serious injury risk by 67 percent.
