Save your child with a seat.

Did you know that every year thousands of young children are killed or injured in crashes? This occurs mainly because nationally, 3 out of every 4 children in child safety seats are not properly secured or, even worse, not restrained at all. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car crashes continue to be the leading cause of death for children ages 1 through 12. It's time we did something about this.


Texas is doing its part by requiring that every passenger in each vehicle wear a safety belt. If a rider isn't buckled in, they'll receive a citation. What's more, any child passenger younger than 8 (unless they're taller than 4 feet 9 inches) must be buckled up according to the instructions of the safety seat's manufacturer.


How can you help improve the odds for your child? Easy. Read and follow the directions below:
