One of the most important jobs you have as a parent or caregiver is keeping your child safe when riding in a vehicle. Each year, thousands of young children are killed or injured in car crashes. Proper use of car seats helps keep children safe. The type of seat your child needs depends on several things, including your child’s age, size and the type of vehicle you have. The following chart is a quick guide on how to select the proper car seat for your child.
DID YOU KNOW?
- Car crashes are the leading killer of children ages 1 to 13.
- In crashes from 2011-2015, 3,194 children under the age of 13 were killed and an estimated 599,000 injured.
- In 2015 alone, 662 children were killed in car crashes. Of those killed, 1 out of 3 were unrestrained.
The Danvers Police Department is committed to making sure that children are riding safely in vehicles, and as such, we have several Nationally Certified Car Seat Safety Technicians (CPST’s) available to assist parents and caregivers in determining the proper seat selection for their child(ren) as well as ensuring that the child restraint is properly installed in the vehicle. The Danvers Police Department also provides car seats – at no cost – to families in need of a proper fitting restraint for their child(ren). We urge you to reach out and let us assist you in making sure that your most precious cargo is riding safe!
