NMDOT PARTNERS WITH SAFER NEW MEXICO NOW

CLOVIS (KSMX)- The New Mexico Department of Transportation Traffic Safety Division is proud to partner with Safer New Mexico Now to reduce deaths and injuries on our state’s roadways.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the proper use of a child safety seat reduces the risk of death among infants by 71% and 53% for older children. In order for a safety seat to be effective, it should fit the child, the vehicle and be used consistently and correctly.

Parents and caregivers will receive education on the proper selection, installation and use of safety seats. They must bring the car seat and if possible, the child. The fitting stations are by appointment only.  The clinics are first-come, first-served.  All of the public service events are funded by NMDOT.

For more information go to www.safernm.org or to make an appointment, call 800-231-6145 or 505-856-6143
