Child Car Seat Safety


One simple item that could help save countless children is a car safety seat. But did you know that 4 out of every 5 child car seats is installed incorrectly?! Another disturbing fact comes from a recent study by the SAFE KIDS organization:

  • 33% of children were in the wrong restraint for their size and age.
  • 63% of kids who should have been in belt-positioning booster seats (typically ages 4 to 8) were inappropriately restrained.

Child Car Seat FAQ


Does your child ride in the back seat?

The back seat is generally the safest place in a crash. If your vehicle has a passenger air bag, it is essential for children 12 and under to ride in back.

If you or you know someone who needs a child passenger safety seat installed or have questions about a seat, feel free to call Safe Kids Upstate at 864-454-1100.
