Car crashes are the leading cause of death for children 1 to 13 years old, according to the National Passenger Safety Board.  Many deaths and injuries can be prevented by proper use of car seats, boosters, and seat belts.

One item that might not be used by caregivers and parents is the tether.  The tether connects the top of a forward-facing car seat to the vehicle. It helps to prevent serious head and neck injury.
