CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A new report says one in four parents admits to not always buckling up their child in the car.
The Safe Kids Worldwide study also found that parents who made $100,000 or more a year or had college educations were more likely to skip the seat belt, car seat or booster seat. The study included more than 1,000 parents.
The report says car crashes are the leading cause of death for kids 12 and younger in the United States. In 2011, 33 percent of the children who died were not buckled up.
