Drivers urged to act on child passenger safety

PLATTSBURGH — The Clinton County Sheriff’s Office is participating in National Child Passenger Safety Week Sept. 15 to 22.

This is an annual campaign to bring public attention to the importance of properly securing all children in appropriate child safety seats, booster seats or seat belts — every trip, every time.

Motor-vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children age 1 through 12. An average of two children (age 12 and younger in a passenger vehicle) are killed and 325 were injured each day. This fatality rate could be reduced by about half if the correct child safety seat were always used, police say.
