Child Passenger Safety Week 2017

"The Right Car Seat, Used The Right Way"

CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY WEEK, September 17-23, 2017 highlights the importance of all children being correctly secured in the right occupant restraint for the child's age, weight, height, and developmental needs. The campaign is dedicated to helping parents and care givers make sure their children ride as safely as possible—every trip, every time. Each day, too many children are secured in the wrong car seats, ride in car seats that have been installed incorrectly, or ride completely unbuckled. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motor vehicle crashes are a leading killer of children. Car seats, booster seats and seat belts can make all the difference during a crash.

Child Passenger Safety Week 2017 Planner

The Child Passenger Safety Week 2017 Planner is available for download. This resource has child passenger safety information to use as you plan and promote your community activity. The planner provides best practice child passenger safety messages, educational flyers, child safety seat statistics, a synopsis of Pennsylvania's Child Passenger Safety Law, and a sample press release. The final page has information on how to register your community event so it will be included in the statewide list of events submitted to PennDOT and NHTSA. All submitted events will be posted on the NHSTA and TIPP website.
