Child passengers under age 13 should ALWAYS ride in the back seat of a vehicle. That's where they are the safest. Child passengers should never be seated in front of an airbag.  Airbags can injure or kill children in a crash that might otherwise have been survivable.

The Child Automobile Safety Initiative (CASI) strives to reach the broader community in its efforts. CASI coordinators are available at various entities and can help with scheduling car seat safety educational presentations, informational packets and/or referrals to a safety check event.

CASI coordinators also build relationships with community organizations that are a source of referrals for individuals in need of receiving education and car seat checks. Such agencies include, but are not limited to, law enforcement, child protective services, judicial systems, and other social service agencies.

Texas Health Resources also offers childbirth education classes that include car seat safety information and checks. For more information, call 1-877-THR-WELL (1-877-847-9355).
