Health Tip: Practice Good Seat Belt Habits

Health Tip: Practice Good Seat Belt Habits

10/03/13

(HealthDay News) -- Wearing a seat belt can save your life in the event of a crash. Parents can help protect kids by making sure they follow good seat belt habits.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers this advice:

  • Parents should set a good example for children by always buckling up.
  • Even for a very short trip in the car, always wear a seat belt.
  • Make sure children are appropriately strapped into their car seats, booster seats or seat belts -- as appropriate for their age, height and weight.
  • Always buckle children age 12 and under into the backseat, never in the front.
  • Do not allow a child to sit in a seat with an airbag in front.
  • Strap your child into the middle seat in the back of the car, as it is the safest spot.
