Cops for Kids has donated $14,600 to Kidsafe.  CFK has entered into a 3-year, $50,000 child restraint road safety program with Kidsafe.  Between 80-90% of child seats/restraints are used or installed incorrectly.  Children from vulnerable families, children living in the outer northern and southern suburbs and children living outside metropolitan Adelaide are 3 times more likely to die in a transport crash than children living within metropolitan Adelaide.  Over the next 3 years Kidsafe will be conducting a free child seat restraint fitting and checking service in targeted country locations and the outer northern and southern suburbs.  It is envisaged this program will reduce the incidence of child road deaths and injury.  Kidsafe SA | Kidsafe is the link to find out more about the services Kidsafe offer.
