GCADA will be presenting on Child Passenger Safety with our Charity Partner, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center this weekend, July 30 and 31, at the Baby & Beyond Expo at the Sharonville Convention Center. If you haven’t already, make sure to get your tickets at your local Kroger and plan to stop by our exhibit!
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that automobile crashes are one of the leading causes of accidental death for children. However, proper restraint can reduce a child’s risk of injury by up to 70%, and reduce their risk of death by nearly 30%. Incredibly, however, 3 out of every 4 car seats are being used incorrectly.

Through our Safe Travel for Kids!! program, we’re working to educate parents and caregivers on the importance of properly securing children, and our exhibit at the Baby & Beyond Expo will help to kick off our efforts during upcoming National Child Passenger Safety Month in September.
We will be giving away goodie-bags with safety information, coloring books, crayons, and other giveaways to remind kids–and their parents–on the need to have the right seat in your vehicle, and to use it correctly. In addition, our partners at Evenflo will be providing the opportunity to win a free car seat! We will have the opportunity to sign up on site, and online in the near future.
