Child Passenger Safety Week

Child Passenger Safety Week

By | Community Support, Dealer News | No Comments

This week is Child Passenger Safety week. Did you know that Motor Vehicle Crashes are the leading cause of unintentional deaths among children aged 1-19? In 2014 alone, 451 children aged 8 and under died due to a motor vehicle crash making up 15% of childhood motor vehicle fatalities. Sadly 116 of these children were not restrained by an age-appropriate device such as an infant car seat, booster seat or seat belt. Child Passenger Safety is an important topic and we wanted to take this opportunity to highlight Florida laws regarding child passengers and to urge you to take the safety of your child passengers into consideration each time you are driving in your Wilde Car.

According to the Florida DMV, children 5 years old or younger must be secured in a federally approved child restraint system– specifically, children 3 or younger must use a separate car-seat or the vehicle’s built in child seat while children 4 through 5 years must sit in either a separate car seat, a built in child seat or a seat belt, depending on the child’s height and weight. Children 6-17 must wear a seatbelt. Failure to comply with these laws could result in a fine up to $60 and 3 points against your driver’s license. 

It is always safer for your child to ride in the backseat over the front and carseats are an important part of child passenger safety. Read below for car seat recommendations for your child from safecar.gov:

recommended-car-seat-graphic

Rear-Facing Car Seat:

Children under age 1 should always ride in rear-facing car seats. You should try to keep your child in rear-facing carseats until they reach the top height or weight limit allowed by the car seat manufacturer. Convertible and All-In-One car seats typically have higher height and weight limits and allow your child to stay rear-facing longer. Once your child outgrows rear-facing they are ready for a forward-facing car seat with a harness and tether.

Forward-Facing Car Seat:

Keep your child in a forward-facing car seat with a harness and tether until they reach the top height or weight limit allowed by your car seat’s manufacturer. Once your child outgrows the forward-facing car seat with a harness, it’s time to travel in a booster seat, but still in the back seat.

Booster Seat:

You should keep your child in a booster seat until they are big enough for a seat belt to fit properly, which means the lap belt lies snugly across the upper thighs (not stomach) and the shoulder belt should lie snugly across the shoulder and chest (not the neck or face). Once your child outgrows a booster seat, your child is finally ready for a seatbelt.

Seat Belt:

Even though your child has outgrown the booster seat, safety is still very important. The back seat is the safest place for your child and you should have them sit in the back until they are at least 12 years old. Never start the car without making sure your children are buckled up! Teaching them this habit young will help keep them safe when as passengers and future drivers.

Wilde Card Event Results

By | Community Support | No Comments

This past weekend we sponsored the Wilde Card Event as part of the 2016 Wilde Card USTA Pro-Circuit Event. Local Bradenton Teen, Maria Shishkina won the event 6-2, 4-6, 6-0 against Ashley Kratzer for the chance to compete for $50,000 in the Pro-Circuit Event that is happening next weekend. Shishkina, a native of Kazakhstan, spoke to Jim Brockman of the Herald Tribune about this opportunity, “This is a great step for me,” Shishkina said. “I’m just really pumped that I was able to play this well. It’s a great experience to get my rhythm back.” Maria and her parents moved to the Bradenton area in 2006 and after two wrist surgeries and a 2 year break from competitive play, she is excited to play at the Oaks, “I can’t wait to get back here because I love this place. The Oaks is just beautiful. I would like to play here more often. Everyone is so nice. The clay courts are amazing.”

Congrats to Maria and all of the contestants on their participation! We are so excited to begin welcoming more players as the event comes ever closer. Check out the full schedule of events here.
