With small passengers come big responsibilities

Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014 — An appropriate and correctly installed child passenger safety seat may be the one thing that makes the difference between life and death for a child involved in a traffic collision. In 2012, 45 percent of all California children younger than 8 years who were killed in a collision were not properly restrained. That total reflects a significant increase from the previous year.

To help raise awareness of the importance of these lifesaving devices for children, the California Highway Patrol will observe National Child Passenger Safety Week, Sept. 14 — 20. Throughout the week, CHP offices will be conducting child safety seat events statewide.

“Protecting a child is a parent’s primary responsibility,” said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow. “No child should die in a collision or suffer serious injury because they were not properly restrained. As a parent or guardian, a child’s survival may depend on you.”
