Kudos from the National Center for Disease Control for the state of Wyoming. Dr. Erin Sauber-Schatz at the C-D-C points to efforts in Wyoming as an example of a good program to stem the tide of traffic deaths among young children. Wyoming is one of only two states with a child safety-seat law that requires children up to age eight to be in appropriate child safety seats. Dr. Sauber-Schatz says child passenger restraint laws that increase the age for car seat or booster seat use, result in getting more children buckled up. She adds, “[Health-care providers] can counsel parents and caregivers at each well-child checkup to use age- and size-appropriate car seats, booster seats and seat belts on every trip.” The CDC says child deaths in car crashes have declined by 43 percent over ten years, but there’s still work to do, because for one in three fatalities for kids ages 12 and under, the child was not properly restrained.
