Safe Kids Worldwide® and State Farm® announce the launch of the Good Neighbor Car Seat Safety Program.

Safe Kids Worldwide® and State Farm® announce the launch of the Good Neighbor Car Seat Safety Program. Kicking off Child Passenger Safety Week (September 17-23), this new program brings car seat checkup events to 25 communities across the country over the next few months, increasing access to education and resources to help inspire behavior change and create a culture of safety for children and families.

At each event, Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians will work with parents and caregivers to help ensure children are buckled up in the right seat, every ride, every time.

Statistics are grim:

  • Motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death for children ages 1-12 in the U.S. (source: CDC)
  • In 2021, one in three children under age 13 who died in a crash were unrestrained. (source: NHTSA)
  • Studies examining misuse among users of child car seats estimate that more than half of car seats are not used or installed correctly. (source: Safe Kids Worldwide)

“A properly used and installed child safety seat can reduce the risk of injury by as much as 71 percent, but too many families do not have access to the education and safety devices that every child deserves,” says Torine Creppy, president of Safe Kids Worldwide. “We are grateful to State Farm for their commitment to keeping all kids safe. Through their continued support, we look forward to expanding our partnership so we can reach more families, prevent more injuries, and save more lives.”

“As a leader in auto safety for decades, State Farm knows firsthand what a difference car seats make at getting more kids home safely each day,” says Sonya Robinson, Vice President, State Farm Corporate Responsibility. “That experience is why we’re grateful for the opportunity to expand this partnership with Safe Kids Worldwide and give more parents the tools to keep kids safe on the road.”
