Car crashes are the number one killer of children between the ages of one and 12 in the United States.
All 50 states have laws on child safety seats but a recent study finds young passengers are in danger because they are not properly secured.
The most common safety lapses have to do with children not being kept in the proper safety seat. Children should remain in rear-facing car seats until at least age two.
As for booster seats, children should remain in them until they are taller than 57 inches and they should ride in the backseat until age 13.
