GRAPHIC - The importance of making sure that children are always fastened in their car seat


We have surely all heard the campaign from the Directorate General of Traffic (DGT) on the radio recently on the correct usage of Child Restraint Systems. It is a very direct message that explains the consequences of "losing" a minute to correctly secure your child.

With this graphic, we aimed to visually summarize the most important figures gathered from the study on accidents resulting in child fatalities. Some figures that contrast with excuses that are often heard, and, as you can see, are not accurate.

Sadly, you never know when you might have a traffic accident. Therefore, we should always secure our children correctly, just like we ourselves should always have our seatbelt fastened.
