Is your child in the right car seat?

September 14th-20th is National Child Passenger Safety Week. Motor vehicle accidents are the number 1 cause of death in children 12 years and younger. Most of the time death and serious injuries can be prevented by using the correct car seat for your child. Children ages 2-5 years old that use a seat belt before they are big enough are four times more likely to suffer a serious head injury compared to children in a proper car seat.

Cellphones cause many more car collisions than reported

Cellphone are causing more car collisions than are being reported.  In a recent study published by the National Safety Council, it was determined that in 2011, only 52 percent of fatal crashes reviewed by the National Safety Council were coded as involving cell phones.  While driver admission of cell phone use is the most valid way to confirm that a cell phone was involved in a crash, even when drivers admit to using a cell phone during car collisions, only 50 percfent of fatal crashes were coded as involving cell phones.  Based on these finding, the NSC concluded that evidence indicates a substantial underreporting of cellphone involvement in fatal crashes.
