Child advocacy group, Safe Kids Worldwide surveyed more than 1,000 parents. One in four admitted to sometimes driving without buckling up their kids. In 2011, about 680 children, under the age of 12, were killed in motor vehicle crashes. A third, according to the study were riding without car seats or seatbelts, that could have saved their lives. Since 1987, the number of children dying in motor vehicle crashes has fallen 58%. However, motor vehicle accidents continue to be the leading cause of injury-related death for children ages one to twelve.
