Editor’s Note: It’s Child Passenger Week! So our Chelsea Foundation team is helping to spread the word on Child Passenger Safety. Feel free to share the information with others, including your colleagues, friends and neighbors, and all who are active on social media.
On September 16, 2 – 3 p.m. EST, @NHTSAgov will host a Child Passenger Safety Week Twitter Chat in conjunction with Child Passenger Week (September 13 – 19) to help ensure that parents and caregivers place the children in their care in the right car seat for their age and size.
We would appreciate it if you would please share this note and flyer with your colleagues, networks and constituencies, as well as friends and neighbors, particularly those who are active in social media, including Twitter.
