From 2006 to 2010, 4,028 children (age 12 and younger in a passenger vehicle) were killed and an estimated 660,000 were injured, in motor vehicle traffic crashes – more than the entire population of Boston, Massachusetts.

“Parents who really know it all, know for sure their child is in the right car seat.”  For more information visit Safercar.gov/therightseat, to find out for sure if you have your child in the right car seat.  The site also has important information on car seat use and installation such as How- to videos, recall notifications, and NHTSA’s car seat ease-of-use ratings.
