Child Passenger Safety video, in Spanish, now available

Motor vehicle crashes kill more kids than any other cause of death - and four out of five car seats are used incorrectly.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for Hispanic children ages 1 year and older, and child fatality rates are higher for Hispanic than non-Hispanic children. Extensive research attributes this to lower levels of restraint use, including child safety seats, booster seats, and seatbelts. 

Child passenger safety is a serious matter in Colorado and to ensure all parents and caregivers have an opportunity to learn about Colorado's laws and recommended practices to keep children safe in vehicles, CDOT now offers a Child Passenger Safety video, with safety tips and guidelines, in Spanish.
