Child Restraints Make A Safety Difference



MANKATO September 18, 2012 (KMKO) – This week is Child Passenger Safety Week and it marks 30 years since Minnesota passed their fist child passenger safety laws.
 
Since 2007, more the 15,000 children were properly restrained and in traffic crashes. Of those 86 percent were not injured and 12 percent suffered only minor injuries.
 
Most common errors parents make are: turning a child from a rear-facing seat to a front-facing seat too soon, having a restraint and a harness not tight enough, having the retainer clip too high or too low and having a child in the wrong restraint.
