Child Safety Seats – The Illinois Child Passenger Protection Act

Many parents think they have installed their child safety seat correctly, but according to SAFE KIDS USA, 84% of child restraint systems installed have at least one critical misuse.

The Illinois Child Passenger Protection Act states that any person who is transporting a child under the age of 8 years in a non-commercial motor vehicle on the roadways, streets or highways of this State, shall be responsible for providing for the protection of such child by properly securing him or her in an appropriate child restraint system.

Gerber Collision urges parents and caregivers to visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Information for more information on child safety seats, laws, and safety technicians in your area. Certified child passenger safety technicians can inspect car seats and provide hands-on advice free of charge.
