Kids Buckle Up Safety Info & Gift Card Giveaway

#KidsBuckleUp $100 Amazon Giftcard Giveaway

A GEEK DADDY Blog has joined forces with our friends at Blog­gin’ Mamas to sup­port the Ad Coun­cil and The U.S. Depart­ment of Transportation’s National High­way Traf­fic Safety Admin­is­tra­tion (NHTSA) with pro­mot­ing the Seat Belt Safety cam­paign, which asks par­ents of chil­dren ages 8–14 to make sure their kids are con­sis­tently and prop­erly wear­ing their seat belt every time they get in the car.

Parenting tweens often involves compromise. But here's one rule that should not be up for debate - the car doesn't move until everyone is wearing a seat belt.  If you say it, and if parents buckle up themselves, your tween will buckle up. And if they don't, that's a fight worth having. It just might save your child's life.

Did you know that in the United States one child passenger age 8-14 is injured every 8 minutes in a car crash?  From 2009 - 2013, 1,522 kids between the ages of 8 and 14 died in car and van crashes.  Of those who died, almost half were unbelted.  As children get older they're sometimes less likely to buckle up.  The percentage of child passengers who die while riding unrestrained generally increases with age and is most pronounced among 13 and 14 year olds regardless of their seating positing within a vehicle.
