Child Passenger Safety Week takes place September 16-22, and to celebrate, we’re investigating the real – and often changing – rules behind safe buckling. Check to be sure that your car seats and booster seats are correctly installed and that your child is secured in the appropriate seat for his or her age and size. Don’t forget to have your child’s caregiver check seats, too.
- Always check the manufacturer’s height and weight guidelines; age is not always the best way to decide on a car seat
- Choose a seat that fits well in your vehicle and use it every time
- Read the manual to insure proper installation
- Children under 13 should never ride in the front seat
