Welcome to the Drive Across the Country for Child Passenger Safety by Global Influence. I am coming to you from the great State of Utah and I am happy to be participating in this wonderful program, hoping to spread the word about 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 Grandma?s? NHTSA is always available to answer your questions online through Facebook and Twitter.
Wishing you a Safe and Happy Holiday this year! Keep those kids safe by using your child safety seats properly (Utah law now requires that children remain in a booster seat until age 8 or reaching 80 lbs).
