BALTIMORE (September 17, 2012) – This week is Child Passenger Safety Awareness Week, and with this season’s increase in school and extracurricular activities, Maryland Kids In Safety Seats (KISS) wants to take the opportunity to provide safety tips for car-pool drivers.
“It is the driver’s responsibility to make sure each child is properly restrained—every trip, every time," says Dr. Joshua Sharfstein, Secretary for the MD Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
How can drivers keep children safe when car-pooling?
