According to the National Center for Health Statistics, motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children 14 years old or younger. The National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that roughly three out of four child safety seats are not used correctly.
Correctly installed child safety seats and booster seats save lives - offering the best protection for children in the event of a crash. TxDOT and SafeKids are offering free safety seat check-ups throughout Texas during 2012 Child Passenger Safety Week, Sept. 16-22.
