Most Child Car Seats Are Improperly Installed [AUDIO]
During this, ‘National Child Passenger Safety Week,’ experts remind parents of small children to make sure they are safe inside their vehicles.
Triple-A/Mid-Atlantic’s Sue Madden says that even now, after years of talking about this, a majority of child car seats are still not improperly installed or worse, some kids in cars are not restrained at all.
“I think the main point is parents just need to take a moment and actually read those thick manuals that come with those car seats.”
Triple-A finds among the worst child seat mistakes are not using a seat at all or not reading the instructions that come with the seat. Estimates indicate that nearly three out of four seats are improperly installed.
Madden says it’s also a good idea to have your seat installation inspected by a professional. More information is available on the Triple-A website.
