Car Seat and Booster Seat Safety for Kids

3 of 9

Buckle Up for Safety

Since the federal government's seat belt awareness campaign began in 1985, seat belt usage has increased from 14% to 75%, saving an estimated 85,000 lives. One of the best ways you can make sure your children develop a lifelong habit of buckling up is to set a good example and always wear your safety belt. Unfortunately, standard safety belts aren't designed for small children, which means that to achieve the same safety benefits for your kids, you need to install car or booster seats.
