The holiday season is solidly upon us, and if your family is like mine, you’re currently getting ready to travel to see family for Christmas. Whether you’re driving across the country to visit family or across town to holiday shop, it is important that your child passengers are riding safely and that child safety seats are used correctly.
AAA estimated that 30 million people travelled this Thanksgiving holiday alone
, and for many this is just the beginning of the holiday hustle and bustle. Now is the time to utilize the Child Car Safety tools
provided by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Ad Council to learn more about proper car seat use and installation. You will find informative resources that include instructional videos.
Have child passenger safety questions that you need answered before you travel over the river and through the woods to Grandma’s? NHTSA is always available to answer your questions online through Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/childpassengersafety

The Global Influence Network
has been driving home the importance of child passenger safety this holiday season and year round with a LATCH cross country blog tour.

I hope that you’ll take a moment in this busy time and learn more about how to keep your children safe while travelling in the car.
Happy Holidays and safe driving!
