Car Seats Colorado
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 3–14 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.
From 2006–2010, 64 child passengers, ages 0–12 died in traffic crashes in Colorado. Over half (55%) were not using a child safety seat or seat belt, or they were using one improperly.
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.
