Child Passenger Safety Week

“Child Passenger Safety Week” Events Taking Place in Rutherford County

by Staff Blogger | September 16th, 2015

Each year, hundreds of children are killed in motor vehicle collisions. In fact, car crashes the leading cause of accidental death among juveniles in the United States today. The Nashville car accident attorneys at Ponce Law explain child safety seats can help save lives, and many organizations are working together to spread that message this week.

Sept. 14-19 is “Child Passenger Safety Week” across the state of Tennessee, and the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Department (RCSD) has events planned each day to help raise awareness about buckling children up.

WGNS News Radio reports the RCSD has partnered with the Tennessee Governor’s Highway Safety Office to conduct both car seat inspections and hand out educational materials at a variety of locations across the county over the next several days. Check out the article to learn more about the dates, times, and places where these events will be taking place.

Attending these events can be crucial—data shows as many as nine out of ten children’s car seats are installed incorrectly in the vehicle. If you’re a parent, our Nashville personal injury lawyers encourage you to visit one of these safety events.
