Is your child riding safely?
Car crashes are the leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 13. Ensuring your child is in the right seat and secured correctly can help lower the number of deaths of young children. On average, two children under 13 were killed per day in 2016 while riding in cars, SUVs, pickups, or vans.

- Call the Kenton Hardin Health Department or use the National Highway Traffic Safety site to find a Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST) in your area. CPST’s can check your seat installation and ensure your child is buckled in the seat properly.
