Today, Transport Canada survey results show that 96 per cent of all Ontarians buckle up. Ontario was the first province to require all drivers and passengers to wear a seatbelt in 1976. Since the law first came into effect, the number of people killed and injured in motor vehicle collisions has steadily dropped and it is estimated that seatbelt use has saved over 8,000 lives. However in 2009, approximately 1 in 6 drivers and passengers killed in motor vehicle collisions were not wearing a seatbelt.

Some of the events that will be going on at this year’s launch:
Many times on the news you’ll hear that you should get your car seat checked.
Certified Car Seat Technicians who are very familiar with the tricks to getting each seat installed properly can help parents understand their vehicle, their child car seat and how the two work best together.
Because there are so many different car manufacturers with different vehicles and many different car seat manufacturers with different car seats, it can be very difficult for parents to get each car seat installed properly in each vehicle.
There are 2 types of clinics: by appointment and drop in.
You need to read the owner’s manual for your vehicle and for the car seat. These two documents together show you (a) how the car manufacturer allows the car seat to be used in the vehicle and (b) how the car seat manufacturer allows for the car seat to be installed.
You’ll meet the technicians who will be helping you with your car seat(s).
You’ll need to fill out some paper work about your child and your vehicle.
While you’re doing the paperwork, the technicians will be doing a quick check of how the seat is currently installed. They will point out things that you have done well and things that will need to be fixed.
The technicians will then remove the car seat, check to see if it is expired and if it is suitable for the child who will be using it.
You will learn about the safety features of your car seat, proper use of the seat for your child (based on their height, weight and age) and how to install it in your vehicle.
Seeing the technicians from start to finish could take up to 30 minutes or more.
Why? Because the child was not harnessed in the seat correctly and the seat was not installed properly.
“A five-month old baby is suffering serious injuries after being ejected from a car crash in the city’s west end on Thursday.
According to police, the whole car seat was thrown off after a collision on Rutherford Rd., east of Islington Ave. in Woodbridge, just after 9:30 p.m.
The impact was felt on the side of the car the baby was in, however no one else was seriously hurt. “
If car seats are installed properly and used correctly, they save lives.
This is the reason why I am so diligent to get the message out to parents to get their car seats check and make sure they know how to use their car seats.
“What makes this rescue all the more remarkable is that, while the truck driver involved was killed, neither the mom or either of her 10-week old or 10-year old daughters was hurt. The police credit the baby’s survival on the proper use of a rear-facing child seat placed not in the front, but in the back where it the car is most able to protect it.”
