Safety technicians and traffic authorities have been urging drivers all across the country to be aware of the risk children could be facing if they are not properly restrained in a car safety seat.
According to the reports, not all parents use child-safety seats, which is a practice that should be eradicated since children are highly vulnerable in the event of an accident. Traffic authorities and safety advocates have reported previously that 63 percent of the deaths of children under 14-years of age are associated with auto crashes. To prevent deaths and serious injuries, parents must learn how to properly secure car safety seats and use these safety devices every time the child is an occupant in the vehicle.
