According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, about 24% of children ages 4 to 7 were prematurely moved to seat belts and 9% were unrestrained altogether.According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, keeping your child in a vehicle seat reduces the risk of death by 71% for infants and 54% for toddlers, but only if the auto seat is installed in your auto properly. “You can use either the seat belt or the lower anchor system, but you can’t use both”, said Becker.
