Child Passenger Safety

There is a new series of four short videos that explain car seat usage and state laws for child passengers in vehicles.

This is the introductory video:

Release from Governor's Office, featuring Donald Driver, on Child Safety:

As we move forward and continue to prioritize funding Wisconsin’s transportation network, which will spur economic growth, it is important to remember safety on our roadways. This week was national Child Passenger Safety Week, so I teamed up with Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver to kick off and promote the proper use of seat belts and child safety seats.

The number one killer of children from birth to age 12 is car accidents. It’s important for parents and caregivers to understand the benefits of wearing a seatbelt and having their children in correctly installed safety seats. Our goal is to make sure everyone traveling on the road has the best chance to avoid injury or death should they be involved in a traffic crash.
