Child Safety Month is September

August 14, 2015
Dealers are encouraged to participate in September in National Child Safety Month. Through a partnership between the National Automobile Dealers Association and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Child Passenger Safety Month is a nationwide effort to educate parents about the importance of properly securing children in approved car seats, booster seats, or with seat belts when traveling.
 
Experts estimate that four of five child safety seats are installed incorrectly, and that about 40 percent of children under age 8 who are injured in car crashes are completely unbelted. Often, the injuries are fatal.
The NADA has free handouts that can be distributed at inspection events. Information to help dealers plan and host a child safety seat inspection event is available on the association’s website, www.nada.org/PublicAffairs/_Landing-Pages/Child-Passenger-Safety-Campaign_-Dealer-Resources.
