Auto Dealers to Promote Child Passenger Safety in September
McLean, VA The National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) has designated this September as Child Passenger Safety Month. New car dealers across the country will host child safety seat inspections at their dealerships, as part of NADA's national "Boost for Safety" campaign, a program developed in partnership with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The September initiative coincides with the back-to-school timeframe,
when many children will be on the roads each day. "Parents will do
the right thing if they have the right information," said William
Bradshaw, NADA chairman and a new car dealer in South Carolina. "Unfortunately,
many parents don't have the right information when it comes to child safety
seats -- and dealers want to change that," he added.
A list of participating dealers will be posted on www.nada.org/boostforsafety in mid-August.
The National Automobile Dealers Association, founded in 1917 and based
in McLean, Va., represents approximately 20,000 new car and truck dealers
holding nearly 43,000 separate franchises, domestic and international.
