Child Passenger Safety Basic Awareness Course
This course was developed to help create awareness about the importance of child passenger safety education and enforcement in preventing child passenger injuries and deaths. This course provides basic knowledge to groups and individuals who can benefit from this information, such as law enforcement, health care and child care professionals.
The mission of this basic awareness course is to reduce the unnecessary and preventable motor vehicle injuries and fatalities to infants and children through increased education, support for enforcement, promotion of positive engineering advancements and the promotion of the correct usage of child restraint systems.
Consider teaching this course for law enforcement prior to the national Click It or Ticket campaigns, to aid in recognition of correct use of car seats, booster seats and seat belts for children.
