Child Passenger Safety

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children under the age of 15. By law, all babies and children are required to be in car seats. Our Child Passenger Safety Program provides education and services to ensure that children are properly secured in car seats while traveling to prevent harm in case of a motor vehicle crash.
