Welcome to CPSafety
Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause injury and death for
children. In 1999, 1,684 child occupants died in motor vehicle crashes,
and in 2000 nearly 248,000 were injured. Even if you’re a careful
driver, you can’t control other drivers’ behavior or eliminate the
possibility of a crash. You can greatly reduce the risk that your
children will be seriously injured or killed, simply by using the
correct child safety seat for your child, and using it properly.
We want to help you protect your child. All of our pages have been
put together to help parents understand the "how" and "why" behind what
they are told is "necessary". If you are wondering
Why should my child
rear-facing? Why should I use a five-point harness?
Why shouldn't I use a shield
booster? or any of the many other "why's" of safely transporting children
in cars, please browse around and find the information you need. And when
you're done...pass it along!
dedicated to all the children who have been injured or killed in motor
vehicle crashes, and to all those who have suffered and grieved for
them, and to all the parents who are willing to learn from these
tragedies and provide the best possible protection for their children.
