Child Booster Seat Education PSA

It’s surprising, but being buckled up with a safety belt is not the safest way for many children to ride in a vehicle. Safety belts are designed for adults, and children under 4’9" tall should ride with a booster seat. Children prematurely moved to seat belts are 4 times more likely to suffer serious head injuries during a collision than children in child safety or booster seats.

The booster seat message is a crucial one, NHTSA estimates that up to 90% of children in the U.S. who should be using a booster seat are not. The goal of this campaign is to educate parents of children who have outgrown their child safety seat that a booster seat is a life-saving transition to an adult safety belt.

  1. It is surely a shame that not all states require a child to be in a booster seat. I just went to Florida and was amazed how many children were not in seats. We should not have to wait for the government to pass a law to protect our children…we should be implementing these suggestions as soon as they come out!
