INJURIES FROM CAR SEATS IN CAR ACCIDENTS -MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA
Car accidents are the leading cause of death to children. Statistics show that over 600 children are killed every year in car accidents. Nearly 180,000 children were injured in car accidents. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says that even though there has been an overall reduction in child deaths from car accident, we still have of room for improvement.
Properly installed and properly use child car seats can prevent many of these deaths and injuries.
Studies show that 96% of parents truly believe that their child’s car seat has been properly installed and is being properly used. Yet, studies show that nearly 1/3d of car seat usages were not proper.
Properly installed child car seats can reduce the risk of death by 71% for infants and 54% for children, according to one study.
The rate of motor vehicle crash deaths per million children younger than 13 has decreased 79 percent overall since 1975. The rate at which children die as passenger vehicle occupants decreased 60 percent, while the rates at which they were killed as pedestrians and bicyclists declined by 92 and 95 percent, respectively.
