Each year, thousands of young children are killed or injured in car crashes. Most of these accidents could be prevented by properly using a car seat, or a child restraint system. In Chile alone, thanks to the correct use of child restraint systems, child fatality rates have gone down by a 51% in the past five years, according to a study conducted by the Ministerio de Transportes Y Telecomunicaciones (MTT, Chile’s Ministry of Transport and Telecommunications), Conaset and the Sección de Investigación de Accidentes en el Tránsito (SIAT, Chile’sTraffic Safety and Traffic Accident Investigation institution).

To reduce these alarming figures, Dorel Juvenile’s leading brand in Chile, Infanti, launched  a nationwide Safe Travel Day (or Dia del Viaje Seguro, in Spanish) aimed at driving awareness on the importance of choosing the right child restraint system for their children. This includes on-site and virtual demonstrations to help educate retailers, parents and caregivers on the different types of child restraint systems available, how to choose the right car seats, and importantly, how to correctly install the car seats.

This initiative was developed to inform parents, through fun and interactive activities around topics such as the difference between the various car seats available, different regulations and what are the adequate car seats, according to different ages, weight and height.
