  Original Published: 9/18/2013 Not every parent is buckling up their child for safety. A new study by Safe Kids Worldwide says one in four parents admit they've driven with their children unrestrained in either seat belt, car seat or booster seat. According to the report, car crashes are the leading cause of death for children in the U.S. And of those children who died in car crashes in 2011, 33 percent were not buckled up.
