During Child Passenger Safety Week, which takes place from September 17 – 23, ACPD is partnering with U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to remind the community of important safety measures they can take to ensure the wellbeing of child passengers in their vehicles!
According to data from NHTSA, car crashes have been deemed one of the leading causes of death for children. Nationwide, 710 children (under 13) were killed in passenger vehicles in 2021 and more than one third of those children were unrestrained during those crashes.
Virginia law requires everyone under the age of 18 to be properly secured in a safety belt or child safety seat no matter where they are sitting in the vehicle, and the driver is responsible for making sure this happens. Drivers are encouraged to make sure children riding in their vehicle are secured properly with a seat belt and are sitting in the appropriately sized car seat. To determine the right size car seat for your child, visit NHTSA’s Find the Right Seat webpage.
