Child Passenger Seat Safety


Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of accidental injury-related death among children ages 14 and under. In Illinois, 80 percent of child safety seats are not installed correctly. When used and installed correctly, child safety seats can prevent injury and save lives.

Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians can check your child safety seats and help you with proper installation and use.
