Ride-sharing services have grown exponentially in popularity. However, many passengers who ride in these vehicles often neglect to practice safe riding practices. This also goes for parents riding with their children in ride-sharing vehicles.
Car safety seats are the single most important means of protection against serious injury or even death for children in an accident. However, many parents neglect to use these safety features when they are travelling in an Uber or a Lyft.
According to a new study, most parents who otherwise use car safety seats to protect their children fail to do so when they are travelling with children in a ride-sharing car. Those findings come from a recent study and have left researchers seriously alarmed because car accidents are the single biggest factor causing death among children below the age of 10 in the United States. Using car safety protection is a significant factor that can help keep children safe while travelling.
