The NHTSA reports that using child safety seats decreases the risk of death by an estimated 71% for infants and 54% for older children.
Safer employs the State's most experienced National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA)-certified Child Passenger Safety (CPS) instructors and technicians. These technicians are certified to inspect and install child safety seats of all types, and to instruct parents on the proper selection and use of their child safety seats. We invite you to attend one of our many Fitting Stations or Car Seat Clinics located throughout the state.
With funding from the NMDOT Traffic Safety Division, Safer manages the Injury Prevention Resource Center (IPRC) in Santa Fe. The IPRC houses and distributes, free of charge, printed material, videos, teaching material, and promotional items on a wide variety of safety topics. To print an order form, click here.
