LATCH Drive across country for child passenger safety


With the holiday season moving into full swing, families across the country are in the car and on the go. Whether you're driving across the country to visit family, or across town to holiday shop, it is important that your child passengers are riding safely and that child safety seats are used correctly.
AAA estimated that 30 million people travelled this Thanksgiving holiday alone and for many this is just the beginning of the holiday hustle and bustle. Now is the time to utilize the Child Car Safety tools provided by the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Ad Council to learn more about proper car seat use and installation. You will find informative resources that include instructional videos.
Have child passenger safety questions that you need answered before you travel over the river and through the woods to Grandmas? NHTSA is always available to answer your questions online through Facebook and Twitter.
We may not drive far on the holidays, but making sure our family is properly buckled up, no matter the distance, is always our first priority. My son's father and I always double check Elijah's car seat every ride and then ensure he is properly secured in. His life depends on us making safe decisions while in the vehicle. Please remember to do the same for your children.
Drive safely and happy holiday!
