Use Of Car Safety Devices Linked To Drop In Children Fatalities

Car safety seat laws may have contributed to a drop in the number of fatalities associated with car crashes and children, reports show.

According to the news, certain agencies have been carrying out studies to understand how the use of booster seats has been linked to the drop in the number of children fatalities in car accidents. The research indicated that, after 47 states of the country enacted laws requiring children up to 7-years-old to be restrained in booster seats, children who are 4 to 6 years old are 23% less likely to die in an accident while children who are 7 years old are 25% less likely to be fatally wounded in a crash.
