Would your child’s car seat or booster work in a crash?
Most parents believe their child’s car seat is installed correctly. But research shows that only three out of 10 are. As a father and defender of the injured, that statistic caught my attention: 7 out of 10 kids in child safety seats are not properly buckled in.
Vehicle crashes are the No. 1 killer of kids. Why? In many cases, children are either not buckled into their car seats properly, or the parents didn’t realize that a booster seat was vital to having the seat belt work properly.
When used correctly, child safety restraints reduce their risk of injury by 70 to 80 percent. So don’t take the chance. Have your child’s safety restraint inspected today.
If you live in or near Gloucester, visit the Gloucester Sheriff’s Office, 7502 Justice Drive. Just call ahead for an appointment (804) 693-3890 to meet a child safety seat-certified officer, and get your questions answered.
