About Kids In Safety Seats (KISS) Kids In Safety Seats (KISS) is a
state-wide, non-profit program funded through a federal grant. Our
mission is to reduce injuries and death among Maryland’s children by
helping people to obtain and use car seats and booster seats correctly
each time a child rides in a motor vehicle.
Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of unintentional injuries and death among children in the United States.
On average in Maryland, 8 children under age 16 are killed and 3,200
seriously injured every year as motor vehicle passengers (CODES, 2010).
Based on car seat inspection summaries, about 75 percent of the car
seats inspected in Maryland have some sort of misuse. Misuse may
include: children riding in the wrong type of car seat, car seats that
are not correctly installed in the vehicle or using car seats that have
been recalled, broken, expired or been in a crash.
