    NYtimes article about children and accidents

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/15/he...healthspecial2

    "The message for parents is to take all available precautions to prevent accidents and injuries, Dr. Arias of the C.D.C. said. That means enforcing car seat use for children until age 8, regardless of weight and height, and keeping them in the back seat until they are 10 or 12, depending on their size, she said."
