Child Safety Seat Inspections
Every hour, 150 children between newborn and 19 years old are treated in emergency departments for injuries sustained in motor vehicle crashes. More children 5 -19 years old die from crash-related injuries than from any other type of injury.
71% of fatalities and 67% of the serious injuries could have been prevented if they were buckled up. Child safety seats reduce the risk of fatal injury by 71% for infants and 54% for toddlers. For children 4-7 years old, 59% of the injuries could have been prevented with the use of booster seats to position the lap and shoulder belt. More than 90% of child safety seats being inspected are used incorrectly.
|No Booster - No Good!|
|Should Your Child Still Be in a Booster Seat?|
Most children need boosters from about age 4 to 9-10 years old. If your child is not riding in a booster, try this 5-Step Test:
1. Does the child sit all the way back against the auto seat?
If you answered “no” to any of these questions, your child still needs a booster seat to ride safely in the car.
|With Booster - Better!|
Inspections are done at the Police Station, 150 S Glendora Ave.
