Pro Consumer Safety is seeking fund contributions to help pilot a sustainable, unique and effective program targeted to under served parents and caregivers of newborn children to promote safety in motor vehicles.

While 96% of parents believe that their child's car seat is installed and being used correctly, unfortunately 3 out of 4 are not, exposing these children to risk of severe injury and death during a crash. This mirrors that fact that motor vehicle injuries are a leading cause of death among children in the United States (CDC).

Child passenger safety is technical and complex. Whereas for a car seat to protect a child as it is designed to, it needs to be 1) the correct seat for the child, 2) correctly installed in the motor vehicle and 3) the child must be buckled up properly in the harness strap. 

Pro Consumer Safety is piloting a sustainable, unique and effective program for under served families in the Los Angeles County area. The program, that has shown to keep children 13 times safer while riding in a motor vehicle, will run for a duration of three months and will serve approximately 240 families providing them with a certified resource for each stage of buckling their child from birth to 16 years. The pilot will provide foundation for a certified, sustainable and effective program for hospitals, clinics and birthing centers for newborns in the Los Angeles area and throughout the United States.

Please help support the Campaign Fund for Child Safety and promote safety for children as passengers in motor vehicles.
