VIDEO from Synaptic Digital and General Motors: Parents Invited to Ensure Their Child Seat is Safe

September 22, 2010

NEW YORK, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ — Rear facing. Forward facing. Booster. Seat Belt. When it comes to child passenger safety, parents and caregivers have so many options. It’s no wonder that research from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicates roughly 3 out of 4 child safety seats are not used properly and as children age they are less likely to be in the appropriate child safety seat for their age and weight.

Safe Kids USA, with the help of The GM Foundation, will celebrate Child Passenger Safety Week (Sept. 19 – 25) with more than 300 coalitions conducting car seat checkup events for families and their children. Nationally certified child passenger safety technicians will provide more than 400 child safety seat inspections and hands-on education to parents and caregivers throughout the week. Families who attend will be sure their older kids are as safe today as when they were babies.

Safe Kids coalitions will also join NHTSA in the National Seat Check Saturday activities to support Seat Check Saturday on Sept. 25.

Safe Kids Buckle Up, the child passenger safety program of Safe Kids USA in partnership with the General Motors Foundation, hosts child safety seat checkups and other vehicle safety events throughout the year.

Nationwide, the Safe Kids Buckle Up program has reached more than 21 million people with local coalitions inspecting more than 1.28 million car seats since the program began in 1997. Parents and caregivers can find additional Safe Kids Buckle Up seat check events by visiting the Safe Kids web-site at www.SafeKids.org.
