Kicks Off National Child Passenger Safety Week September 19-25


Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White will unveil a new Public Service Announcement (PSA) to air statewide to ensure children are properly restrained in child safety seats.  There will be a demonstration of how to properly install safety seats as well as a display of safety seats. September 19 through 25 marks National Child Safety Seat Week.

White will release the PSA Friday, September 17 at 10 a.m., at the James R. Thompson Center, 100 W. Randolph, in Chicago.

According to the press release, eighty percent of child safety seats are improperly installed in Illinois.  Traffic crashes are the leading cause of death and injury for young children.

State law requires that children under the age of eight must be secured in an appropriate child restraint system.

One of the most effective measures a person can take to help prevent an injury or death in a crash is to have children restrained in the appropriate child safety restraint.
