September is Child Safety Month

August 15, 2014
Dealers are encouraged to participate in National Child Safety Month in September. 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 out of five child safety seats are installed incorrectly, and that about 40 percent of children under the age of 8 who are injured in car crashes are completely unbelted. Oftentimes, the injuries are fatal.
The NADA offers free handouts for distribution at inspection events. Information to help dealers plan and host a child safety seat inspection event is available on the NADA website at
