A recent press release from the Prince of Wales Medical Research Institute is bringing attention to the increased risk of death or injury to children through the use of car restraints that are the wrong size or are improperly secured.
Considering that automobile accidents are one of the main sources of traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, understanding how to properly secure your child becomes a vital bit of knowledge.
According to the release, 82 percent of the children who were involved in a car accident between 2002 and 2005 were using restraints that were inappropriate for their size. This resulted in serious injuries and even death.
