Gov. Brad Little, in a proclamation, said Idaho will honor the safety week from September 15-21.

A child should ride in a rear-facing vehicle seat from birth to age 2, or when they reach the upper weight or height limit for the auto seat. If using a seat belt is not a priority for the parent, it's likely not going to be priority for the child.

When installed correctly, vehicle seats can reduce the risk of fatal injury in a crash by 71% and by 54% for toddlers.

A new initiative this year, piloted by Helen DeVos Children's Hospital, aims to educate children ages 5-12 about riding safely in a auto, focusing on the benefits of booster seats and the importance of riding in the backseat until age 13.

The Metro Public Health Department and Opus inspections partnered to handed out flyers on auto seat safety Friday.

Many times, injuries and deaths can be prevented by proper use of auto seats, boosters, and seat belts.

For optimal safety, it is recommended to keep children rear-facing as long as possible, up to the top height or weight allowed by their particular seats.
