A moving vehicle with child passengers is one of the most dangerous places for children. In California, car accidents are among the top five causes of hospitalization and death among children under age 16. There is universal agreement that serious injury to a child passenger during the operation of a vehicle is significantly reduced if that child is in a car seat that has been properly installed and fitted. Many parents, however, are not aware of the steps they should take to ensure that their children are as safe as possible while riding in a motor vehicle.
