Did You Know?

One common mistake caregivers make is transitioning children out of a booster seat too soon. In fact, 1/3 of children prematurely transition to an adult seat belt. To maximize your child's safety, keep them in their proper car seat as long as possible.

Using the correct car seat decreases the risk of injury in a crash by up to 82%, when compared to seat belt use alone.
