Injury is one of the leading causes of death and disability in Hawaii for all children, responsible for more deaths of children ages 1-17, than all other causes combined. Automobile safety has been our major focus as traffic related injuries continue to be the leading cause of death for Hawaii’s children and youth. KIPC, with the help of our members, community partners and volunteers has made major strides in improving vehicle occupant protection for children in our state. Safety Seat Inspection Stations statewide offer hands-on education free of charge. View our Car Seat Safety Check Calendar or the Car Seat Safety page and find a station near you.
