A Federal Mandate requiring that Vehicles provide Seatbelts for both Children and Adults as Standard Equipment in all rear seating positions of vehicles. sign now

Did you know that

MOTOR VEHICLE CRASHES ARE THE #1 CAUSE OF DEATH FOR CHILDREN
...........................................................................

It is absolutely beyond dispute that vehicles must provide vehicle seats that in addition to having Adult Seatbelts also must have Child Shoulder Restraint Seatbelting Systems provided as standard equipment in all rear seating positions of vehicles.

Given the immature nature of childrens anatomical and physical development, it is incumbent upon us as a society to also consider the risks associated with child passengers in vehicles and to provide maximum protection for those risks that can result in their severe injury or death.

It is time to leave partial solutions behind and move decisively to ameliorate these clear and present dangers to the Forgotten Child.

-Joan Claybrook, President of Public Citizen and Child Safety Advocate
............................................................................

*Forgotten Child: Children riding in motor vehicles who are roughly between the ages of 4 12 or beyond depending on their size.
............................................................................

Each one of us together has the ability to speak up for the safety of these children. Because they are minors they are unable to speak up for themselves so they depend on us as adults to advocate for them.

If you could please sign this petition which requests that a Federal Mandate be made requiring vehicles to finally have vehicle seats that not only provide readily available restraint systems designed for adults but also provide Child Shoulder Restraint Systems designed for children as Standard Equipment in all rear seating positions of vehicles as well.

In order to be safe and effective theses systems need to be designed for children who are at least 4 to 12 years of age/ 40-60 to 80-100 lbs. and under 49 to 5 feet tall. (they must have 2 retractable vertical shoulder straps, a chest plate, and a center component and they should in some form offer 5 points of protection).

This is truly the only real way to ensure that there are no longer any safety gaps and that all passengers regardless of their age, newborn through adult, finally have readily available to them as well as to their children as standard equipment in vehicles the age appropriate protection that they so desperately need.

Thank you so much for your time and for caring enough to try and make a difference by signing this petition which we are hoping will finally make available to these children and their parents/ caregivers the readily available protection as standard equipment in vehicles that they rightfully should have had all along.

The website link that follows is a rough draft of a childrens vehicle safety website. At this time it is not complete but does have some very good information regarding the importance of this National Child Safety Crisis.
