As we all know, making sure our kids are restrained properly in our vehicles is of the utmost importance. It can be challenging as a parent to keep up with all of the requirements for safe car seat use and installation as our children continue to get older, taller, and gain more weight. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Ad Council is thrilled to let us know that there are some amazing online resources available to you to help navigate this information!
Check out the following FREE resources available to help you make safe choices about car seats and to help you use your car seats properly for maximum safety:
Twitter: An actual safety expert mans the @ChildSeatSafety account on Twitter, and they will continue to answer any questions that parents have about child passenger safety. This is such a unique resource from a government agency!
Facebook: NHTSA has a Facebook page at http://facebook.com/childpassengersafety where parents can learn about everything from LATCH to locating inspection offices.
Website: The Ad Council and the NHTSA have created a site with all the resources parents need to keep their smallest passengers safe: http://childcarsafety.adcouncil.org/. Find your local inspection station, watch instructional videos, and even take a fun quiz!
