Car Seats Colorado
The mission of Child Passenger Safety (CPS) Team Colorado is to provide an environment in Colorado where every child is properly secured in an approved and appropriate restraint system while riding in a motor vehicle. By leveraging and creating successful partnerships with public safety and community based organizations, CPS Team Colorado will aid in establishing, maintaining and enhancing public education, technical training, and advocacy.
Is Your Child in the Right Car Seat? Know For Sure!
Three out of four parents think their child is in the right car seat, but they are not. Car Seats Colorado is dedicated to keeping kids age 0-15 safe on Colorado roadways.
Motor vehicle injuries represent the leading cause of death among children age 0–15 years old in the U.S. (Source: NHTSA, 2008 data). Many of these deaths can be prevented. Placing children in age- and size-appropriate car seats and booster seats reduces serious and fatal injuries by more than half.
Colorado has over 1,000 technicians and 38 instructors across the state. CPS Team Colorado has approximately 150 designated inspection stations, where parents can go to make sure their car seat is properly installed by a certified technician or instructor.
