There’s probably no single piece of auto safety equipment that has a stronger role to play in your safety than a seat belt. For decades now, buckling up and making sure that everyone in your car is buckled up as well has been the most effective way to minimize the risk of serious injury in an accident.
When it comes to children, the risk of injury in a car accident is even more severe. Children should absolutely not be riding in a vehicle without being safely restrained in car seat systems or seatbelts depending on their age. Recently, celeb entertainer Mariah Caney was the subject of strong criticism after she posted a video on social media that appeared to show her children unrestrained while travelling in a moving car.
