CPS Week

Millions of parents and caregivers travel with children in their vehicles every day. While some children are buckled in properly, most are not—if they are buckled up at all. In honor of National Child Passenger Safety Week, Sept. 23-29, we'll be posting tips, tools and events to help you make sure your child is properly secured in the correct car seat for their age and height. Learn more at CarSeatsColorado.com.
