Did you know that three out of every four car seats are not used or installed correctly?
The Arkansas Children’s Hospital concluded a smartphone app could be an effective way to promote car seat safety. The goal of the experiment was to find a way to cut down child injuries and deaths by promoting car seat safety.
The hospital said car crashes continue to be the leading cause of death for young children.
According to Safe Kids Worldwide, correctly used child safety seats can reduce the risk of death by as much as 71 percent.
Arkansas Children’s Hospital found that participants reported improvements in knowledge and practices with car seats in areas such as having the correct car seat, or restraint for their child’s age and weight, and having their car seat inspected by a professional.
