How to Keep Your Child Safe in a Car

Car Seat Installation Tips continued...

To minimize the risk that a child will accidentally be left behind in a car or get trapped inside:

  • Leave a purse, briefcase, or cell phone in the back seat. That way, you get in the habit of checking in the back seat before leaving the vehicle.
  • Make an arrangement with your child’s daycare to have them call you if the child doesn’t show up as expected.
  • Always lock your car and car trunk, even if the car is parked in the driveway at home, and always keep keys and fobs out of the reach of little ones.
