Some Facts About Child Passenger Safety
 
 

Studies have shown that up to 96% of parents believe that they have installed and use their child’s car seat correctly.  In actuality, nearly 70% of car seats are misused in at least one way critical enough to compromise a child’s safety.  Common misuses include children riding around in expired seats, harness straps that are too loose, seat belts that are too loose and/or not locked off correctly.
 
Most parents don’t realize that child passenger seats, depending on the manufacturer, have on average a six-year life span.  Parents and caregivers need to be cautious when using a second or third hand car seat.  It’s very important to know the history of that particular seat, has it been involved in a vehicle accident, have there been any recall notices issued concerning that particular model?
                                               
When purchasing a new car seat, take the time to fill out and return the product registration card to the manufacturer.  This will help keep you in the loop when there are recall notices or service bulletins issued for your child’s seat.
 
Even though research shows that belt positioning booster seats lower the risk of injury to children involved in car crashes by as much as 59% compared with those just wearing a seat belt designed to fit an adult, only about 19% of children who should be properly restrained in belt positioning booster seats use them.
 
If you have questions regarding the safe transportation of your children or children you are responsible for, contact your local certified child passenger safety technicians. Contact Okanogan County Fire District 6 Division Chief Brian McAuliffe at bmcauliffe@okanogancountyfd6.com or 429-3992, or Aero Methow Rescue Service’s Theresa Remsberg can be reached at tremsberg@aeromethow.org or 997-4013.
