Fun, Fun, Fun… before
you hit the road to enjoy the summer weather, make sure to buckle up to get there safely.
According to NTHSA:
Buckle up. Every trip. Every time.
Be a role model as a driver and buckle up. Insist your passengers do the same.
Keep your precious cargo safe.
Kids 13 years and younger should ride in the back seat. Ensure the child seats in your car are properly installed. In addition, make sure they are in a seat designed for their size and weight.
NHTSA has Child Passenger Safety recommendations on their website to show one how to choose the right car seat for your child. Also, you can find places to check your child’s seat to see if it is properly installed there too. For more info visit www.nhtsa.gov/cps/cpsfitting/index.cfm.
Other child safety tips from NTHSA are:
“Never leave your child unattended in or around your vehicle.” &
“Always remember to lock your vehicle when exiting so children do not play or get trapped inside.”
