Making sure your child is securely fastened

Keeping your child safe in your car.

COLUMBIA (WACH) --- According to Buckle Buddies car crashes are the leading cause of death for children under one.

There are different positions for the car seat depending on how old the child is.

For instance a child from birth to one, who weighs less than 20 pounds must be secured in a rear-facing car seat.

The Columbia Police Department has a program designed to make sure you know how to buckle your child in.
