CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY:
Do you need information about the different types of car seats or the car seat your child is currently in?
- What seat should my child be using?
- How long can my child use his/her current seat?
- What is the next seat my child will need?
- How can I keep my child as safe as possible in the vehicle?
Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children ages 2 to 14. (NHTSA, 2002)
you know that nearly 90% of car seats are used or installed
improperly? Or that children should remain in boosters until they
can meet the 5-step test (usually after their 8th birthday)?
Success By 6 of the Palouse, we believe very strongly in making sure
all of our young community members are as safe as they can be when
riding in a vehicle. Child passenger safety is a very vast
subject, with lots of car seats, laws, "best practice", and obscure
rules. It should be intuitive and easy to do the right thing, but
unfortunately it often is not. That's why we have both a Child
Passenger Safety Technician and a Child Passenger Safety
Technician-Instructor dedicated to helping you determine the safest way
to transport your children. We offer information on any aspect of
passenger safety, from car seats & boosters to vehicle safety
features. We also offer free, one-on-one car seat check ups so
you can make sure your car seat is being installed and used properly
and that your child is in the best seat for him/her. In addition,
we can provide educational group classes for interested parties. Please
contact Janice at 509-597-8917, Karen at 208-596-6846, or Patricia at 208-301-8150.
