Car Seat Safety

Child Passenger Safety Statistics & Fact Sheet

  1. Prevention- Child safety seats reduce the risk of death in passenger cars by 71% for infants and by 54% for toddlers ages 1 to 4 years.
  2. The Problem- In the United States during 2005, approximately 1,300 children ages 14 years and younger died as occupants in motor vehicle crashes, and approximately 184,000 were injured. That’s an average of 4 deaths and 504 injuries each day.
  3. Risk Factors- 1 out of 4 occupant deaths among children ages 0 to 14 years involved a drinking driver. More than 2/3 of these fatally injured children were riding with a drinking driver.

 

We currently do not offer car seat installation.

But here is a link to Colorado Department of Transportation that provides information on where you can go to get your car seat professionally inspected.
