CHIEF’S CORNER CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY - Tuesday, August 30, 2016

For additional information
Contact: MPO Janell Wilson

Gallatin, TN – September 18-24th is National Child Passenger Safety Week. Car crashes are a leading cause of death for children 1 to 13 years old. Many deaths and injuries can be prevented by proper use of car seats, boosters and seat belts. Getting safety information and car seat instructions to parents and caregivers is crucial to saving young lives. Safety is our top priority, particularly when it comes to protecting our children, who are our most vulnerable passengers. Parents and caregivers can be the first line of defense by ensuring their children are correctly secured in the right seat for their size and age, and by buckling up themselves. Motor vehicle crashes remain a leading cause of death for children. Regardless of the size of the vehicle, the age of the child or the length of the trip, children should always be properly restrained in a car seat, booster or seat belt. Car seats, when correctly installed and used, provide proven life-saving and injury-reducing benefits for child passengers. Tennessee State crash data shows that from August 30, 2015 to August 30, 2016 there were 210 crashes with fatalities involving children 13 and under. During those same dates there were 302 crashes with injuries involving children 13 and under.

Tennessee State Law: Children younger than 1 year old or weighing 20 lbs. or less must be properly secured in an approved rear-facing child passenger restraint system. Children between 1 to 3 years old weighing more than 20 lbs. must be properly secured in an approved forward-facing or rear facing child passenger restraint system. Children 4 to 8 years old and less than 4 ft 9 in tall must be properly secured in an approved belt-positioning booster seat system. Children exceeding these limits must follow the seat belt rules as follows; must be properly secured by a seat belt when riding in the front seat of a vehicle. Both shoulder and lap belts must be used if the vehicle is equipped with them.
