LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 18, 2003) -- The Fayette County SAFE KIDS Coalition, led by University of Kentucky Children’s Hospital, recently dedicated a 2004 Chevy Express Cargo Van to assist with child safety seat check ups.

The van was donated by SAFE KIDS BUCKLE UP Program sponsors, including the National SAFE KIDS Campaign, UAW-GM Center for Human Resources, and General Motors. The van is equipped with all that is necessary for technicians to do child safety seat check ups.

According to the SAFE KIDS organization, four out of five child safety seats are installed incorrectly, and motor vehicle crashes remain the number one killer of children under the age of 14.
