CDC Telebriefing: New Vital Signs Report
Have we made any progress keeping children buckled up and safe on the road?
Motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death for U.S. children, although deaths have gone down in the past decade. So why are our youngest children still dying in crashes? One of three children who die in a crash is not buckled up. CDC will discuss the latest data on motor vehicle deaths among children aged 12 and under, the impact of improving state child passenger restraint laws, and what everyone can do to protect children on the road.
