Child Passenger Safety
Drive Smart is a FIT Station for CPS Team Colorado. We educate parents,
grandparents and caregivers about Child Passenger Safety.
Three out of four parents think their child is in the right car seat, but they are not. Motor vehicle injuries represent the leading cause of death among children age 3–14 years old in the U.S. (Source: NHTSA, 2008 data). Many of these deaths can be prevented. Placing children in age- and size-appropriate car seats and booster seats reducesserious and fatal injuries by more than half.
Drive Smart is dedicated to keeping kids safe on Colorado roadways, we provide car seats and booster seats to families in need; to date we have given out over 350 car seats & booster seats.
If you are interested in having your car seat checked, or in need of assistance in acquiring a car seat, please email Katie Offerman at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 303-674-9683 to make an appointment.

More community members are needed to take an active role in car seat installation. To view a video of why this training is so important, please visit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azgBhZfcqaQ Resource: www.safekids.org
