“Child safety seats and safety belts, when installed and used properly, can prevent injuries and save lives. Each year, an estimated 975 child occupants under 14 years of age die as a result of a motor vehicle incident. Young children restrained in child safety seats have an 80% lower risk of fatal injury than those who are unrestrained.” – www.safekids.org ​​​​
