It's National Child Passenger Safety Week

Did you know that National Child Passenger Safety Week is September 12 through 18 and that nationwide, motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death for children? That's according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration statistics.

Idaho's Child Passenger Safety Law requires that all children six years of age or younger be property secured in an appropriate child safety restraint for every vehicle trip.

The Idaho Transportation Department has more information on child passenger safety. Here's a link to their website.
