The calls come as Brake's annual Beep Beep! Day campaign kicks off, which aims to save little lives on roads.
During the next three months, 200 nurseries, pre-schools and children's centres are running awareness events to teach tots and their parents about road safety and raise awareness about the need for drivers to slow down to protect families. Brake is urging more to sign up.
The survey of 1,000 parents of children under 10 by Brake also uncovered various facts.
■ One in 20 said they never use a child or booster seat.
■ More than a quarter have used a child seat or booster seat that did not fit properly.
And half don't always ensure their child uses an appropriate child seat or booster seat when travelling in a taxi or someone else's car;
In addition, more than a quarter have used a second-hand child seat or booster seat, which is not recommended by safety experts.
