This is a very important question as proper use and installation of a child restraint seat can determine whether an infant or child survives a motor vehicle crash. Statistics show two alarming facts:
- 1. The majority of car seats (4 out of 5) are installed incorrectly.
- 2. Of every 100 children who die in motor vehicle crashes, at least 80% would have survived if they were properly secured in an approved child safety seat.
Thankfully, there are trained technicians in our area that are able to check your child’s restraint seat and show parents how to properly install and use their child’s car seat.
