(HealthDay News) — Strapping your child in an appropriate car seat protects against injuries, but it’s just as important for a parent to drive safely.

Here are guidelines from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services:

  • Use a seatbelt any time you drive or ride in a car.
  • Never drive if you have been drinking alcohol or using drugs.
  • Do not text while driving.
  • Always follow the speed limit.
  • Maintain a safe distance between you and the car in front of you.
