Child safety seats reduce fatal injury by 71 percent for infants and by 54 percent for children ages one to four. Child safety seats reduce the need for hospitalization after a crash by 69 percent. However, when child restrains are used, nearly 73 percent are either not installed correctly or the child is not secured correctly in the seat.
