Monday starts Child Passenger Safety Week and it is a great time to brush up on car seat safety and make sure your child is in the right seat, with the right seat and installation. Selecting the right seat in a store with tons of brands, types and prices can be quite overwhelming. What’s the difference between a combination and a convertible? When is my child ready for a booster seat? When did car seats become so complicated? Thankfully, there is help!

During Child Passenger Safety Week, more than 1000 events are expected in 45 states across the country to raise awareness for proper car seat installation and usage. The week culminates in “Seat Check Saturday,” where Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians will help parents and other caregivers make sure their car seats are installed correctly. In most cases, this service is FREE!

The right car seat is so important. Every 33 seconds* a child under 13 is involved in a car crash in the United States. Car seats, if used correctly, can dramatically reduce the risk of death or injury. But over half of car seats are either installed or used incorrectly, and 1 in 3 children killed in car crashes in 2015 was not in a car seat, booster seat, or seat belt at the time of the crash. To make sure your child is using the right seat you can visit NHTSA.gov/TheRightSeat, or fnd a Child Passenger Safety Week event in your area by visitng bit.ly/CPSTech.
