Make Sure They Are in #TheRightSeat

For children ages 1 to 13, motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death. In 2015, an average of 2 children were killed and 319 injured every day while riding in cars, SUVs, pickups, and vans. Let’s work together to help spread the word about child passenger safety, and help parents and caregivers choose and use #TheRightSeat.

During Child Passenger Safety Week, NHTSA will host a Twitter Chat where experts will be available to answer your questions. Please help us spread the word and encourage parents and caregivers learn all they can about child passenger safety. We’ve got plenty of resources available to you to help you spread this message to your friends, family, and followers.

Who: NHTSA and our team of experts

What: Child Passenger Safety Week Twitter Chat

When: Wednesday, September 20, 2016, 3 – 4 p.m. ET


How: Follow the conversation using the hashtag #TheRightSeat. Feel free to mention @NHTSAgov in any of your tweets and we will get back to as many questions and comments as we can! Remember to include #TheRightSeat in your comments so others can follow along with the conversation, too.
