A child using a seat belt without a booster should be able (and mature enough) to sit all the way back against the seat cushion with knees bent comfortably over the edge of the seat, and feet on the floor. If not, the child should remain in a booster seat.
Child resistance is one factor why the national average for booster seat use is only 22 percent. Child Automobile Safety Initiative strives to combat this with school based education tailored to children. CASI coordinators are available to give classroom presentations, school wide assemblies, present at PTO meetings, as well as provide a child safety seat check directly after school at your child's school.
Once invited to the elementary school, Texas Health Resources staff will gather baseline, one-month and six-month direct observations of child restraint use, in order to measure impact of the program. There is also a three-month follow up survey directed at parents to ensure accountability and cost effectiveness. A CASI coordinator is available to provide more information, please contact us.
