Excerpt
Excerpt: Proper restraints, correctly installed, save lives of our youngest passengers The grim facts: // Traffic crashes are the leading cause of death to children. // Of those children involved in fatal crashes in 2003, 15 percent of infants, 19 percent of toddlers ages 1 to 3, and 28 percent of children ages 4 to 7 were unrestrained. // Children exposed to deployed air bags are twice as likely to suffer significant injury than children not exposed. // From 1994 through 2003, 3,942 children ages 4 through 7 were killed while riding in motor vehicles. Over 87 percent who died were unrestrained or in an adult seat belt. // Eight out of 10 child safety seats are not properly installed, putting children at increased risk of serious injury or even death. To be protected, children must be properly restrained in seats appropriate for their age, height, and weight. // Children inappropriately restrained in seat belts are 3.5 times more likely to suffer abdominal injury and 4 times more likely to suffer head/brain injury than children appropriately restrained in booster seats. // Once children outgrow their traditional child safety seats (usually at about age 4), they need to ride in booster seats to age 8. Without a booster seat, the lap belt can ride over a child's stomach and the shoulder belt can cut across a child's neck. As this position is uncomfortable, children frequently remove the shoulder portion of the adult seat belt, increasing their risk of head injury.
