When you think about transporting your child in your car – what is usually the first question that comes to your mind? Well, to mind is that child seats are they really safe? To me – I don’t know – I don’t have a child but really, for those of you that do, have you ever asked yourself that? Car crashes are actually at the top of the list for causes of death and injury for American children.
Did you know that most of those are actually because the parents do not know how to use the child seat and therefore did not put in right or did not strap their child into it right? That is not the entire story though, NHTSA, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration actually did some tests on car seats and found that many different brands were not safe either.
While this might have been corrected now – there is still some concern. That is what we are going to explore in the next blog, how you can prevent your child from becoming a statistic.
