Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death and disabling injury for children in the United States. Maryland Law requires that all children under the age of 8 years old must ride in an appropriate child car seat. Additionally, every child from 8 to 16 years should also be secured appropriately in every vehicle. MWPH has multiple resources to help parents and families navigate the car seat challenges.
