Buckle Up: Every Ride. Every Time. Every Age.

Did you know that 1 in 4 parents admit to not buckling up their kids?!?

What’s even more mind-blowing is that parents who have graduate degrees are TWICE as likely to say that it is acceptable to driving without buckling up their children!

Based on these findings, Safe Kids offers these three strategies for parents to keep their kids safe while riding in cars:

  1. Buckle up kids on every ride, every time.
  2. Talk to other parents who are driving your kids about the importance of buckling up.
  3. Check that the right child safety seat is being used and that it’s installed properly.
