Honda Accord: All ChildrenMust Be Restrained
Each year, many children are injured or killed in vehicle crashes because they are either unrestrained or not properly restrained. In fact, traffic collisions are the number one cause of death of children age 12 and under.
To reduce the number of child deaths and injuries, every state, Canadian province and territory requires that infants and children be properly restrainedwhen they ride in a vehicle.
Infants and small children must be restrained in an approved child seat that is properly secured to the vehicle.
Children who are unrestrained or improperly restrained can be seriously injured or killed in a crash.
Any child too small for a seat belt should be properly restrained in a child seat. A larger child should be properly restrained with a seat belt and use a booster seat if necessary.
Larger children must be restrained with a lap/shoulder belt and ride on a booster seat until the seat belt fits them properly.
