Did you know three out of four car seats aren’t installed correctly? A properly used child safety seat can reduce the risk of preventable death by as much as 71 percent.
To help improve the safety of children in the OKC metro, the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority (OTA) partnered with Safe Kids Oklahoma and Oklahoma City Zoo for a Car Seat Safety Check on June 21. The event provided families with safety inspections and installations of car seats at no cost.
OTA hopes to reduce the number of improperly installed car seats and the number one killer of children – preventable injuries.
