Ollie The Otter To Be At Childseat Checkpoint
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA),. research on the effectiveness of child safety seats has found them to reduce fatal injury by 71 percent for infants younger than a year old, and by 54 percent for toddlers one to four years old. Officials say many parents and others who transport children do not understand the potential deadly results from not using a child seat or booster seat at all or using one that is not properly used or secured in a vehicle. Research also shows that high visibility enforcement, accompanied by education is most effective in raising occupant restraint use.
