Lane County, Ore. – Motor vehicle crashes remain the leading cause of death nationwide for children ages one through twelve years old.

 

In 2019, 1,636 children under age twelve were injured in Oregon traffic crashes. 10 percent were reported to be not using a child restraint system. It is estimated that car seats may increase crash survival by 71% for infants under one year-old and by up to 59% for toddlers age one to four. Booster seats may reduce the chance of nonfatal injury among four to eight year-olds by 45% compared to safety belts used alone.
