Buckle UP and Make sure to use Car Seats Correctly
Buckle UP and make sure your passengers are buckled up correctly!
In passenger cars, correctly used car seats reduce the risk of fatal injury by 71% for an infant and 54% for toddlers. Make sure they’re in the right seat that’s correctly installed.
Are your kids at risk? Many caregivers are confident that they are using car seats correctly, but in most cases, the child has been secured incorrectly or the car seat has been installed incorrectly. Confused about car seats? Help is available. Have your child's car seat or booster seat checked by one of the many certified child passenger safety technicians available throughout the state. To find a child passenger safety technician or a scheduled car seat checkup event, contact the North Dakota Department of Health, Child Passenger Program at 800.427.2286.
