Mark Child Passenger Safety Week

Motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 13, according to the National HighwayTraffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

During national Child Passenger Safety Week from Sept. 13 to 19, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) will use social media: Twitter ( @WisconsinDOT; Facebook ( and other messaging to remind adults that consistent and proper use of child safety restraints in vehicles can be a matter of life or death.

“The best way to protect children in vehicles is to put them in the right seat and use it the right way,” David Pabst, director of the DOT Bureau of Transportation Safety, said in a press release.

To help determine the proper safety seat (based on a child’s age and size) and how to use it, DOT offers an instructional video available on its website at

“The installation and proper use of child safety seats can be confusing, and the types and placement of child safety seats change as your child grows. The Zero In Wisconsin video on ‘How to Properly Use Child Safety Seats in Wisconsin’ provides easy-to-follow instructions. It also will be a great reference resource as your child grows,” Pabst said.

A list of child passenger safety information resources, including locations for car seat safety checks, is available online at: http://wisconsindot. gov/Pages/safety/education/child-safety/resources.aspx.
