According to the CDC, motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death among children in the US. According to NHTSA, approx. 72% of child restraint systems were misused in a way that could be expected to INCREASE a child’s risk of injury during a crash. You may never be involved in an accident with your child in the car, but wouldn’t you want to know that they’ve got the most protection possible just in case?
