Congresswoman Dina Titus Awarded for Efforts to Improve Child Passenger Safety

Properly used and installed car seats can reduce a child’s risk of serious and fatal injuries in a crash by up to 80 percent. Children from underserved communities face higher death rates, sometimes even twice as high. In May, Representative Dina Titus introduced a bill entitled Enhancing Child Passenger Safety in Underserved Communities Act that aims to reduce child fatalities by spreading awareness and educating the public. The bill defines underserved communities as isolated rural and tribal communities and low-income areas, and encourages use of aggressive child passenger safety (CPS) programs in Highway Safety Plans. It also encourages utilizing Occupant Protection Incentive Grant funding for CPS services and education. Congresswoman Titus led the effort for access to child safety seats, an effort that allows families to receive appropriately sized seats for free or at a reduced cost.
