Child Passenger Safety Week is here to remind us that kids are at risk everyday from not buckling up or taking precautionary measure while in a vehicle. 

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 37.4 percent of children between the ages of four to seven are not being properly restrained when riding in a vehicle.

“When children are not buckled up or are riding in a seat that isn’t used correctly, their safety is in jeopardy,” said NHTSA Administrator Dr. Mark Rosekind.
