One of the 15 greatest achievements in child injury prevention has been in child passenger safety. New babies are born every day and as kids grow their safety needs change. Parents and caregivers need to pay attention to those changes for at least age 13 when a child can correctly wear an adult seat belt. This presentation is critical for any parents or caregivers who transport young children. Register Here
