Is Your Child In The Right Car Seat?


Car crashes are the number one killer of children 1 to 12 years old in the United States and Canada. The best way to protect them in the car is to put them in the right seat, at the right time, and use it the right way. Read this article to help you make better-informed choices when choosing and using a car seat.

There are so many car seat types and models, how do you know which one is right for your child? The right car seat or booster fits your child and your car, and is one you will use correctly every time you travel. Not only will your child ride as safely as possible, you will be establishing the foundation for a lifelong habit of seat belt use every time your child travels.

This website by the National Highway Traffic  Safety Association(NHTSA) includes all the information you need to ensure your child is in the correct car seat, and includes how-to videos on car seat use and installation.
