In Maiden we had a recent tragedy with a mother and her 4 year old daughter dying in a car accident off of East Springs Road. It has prompted me to be more safety consious while riding in a vehicle. We all know to do it, but sometimes we don't really think about it.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 3 out of 4 carseats are not installed correctly!! How scary! Each vehicle has a LATCH system to be used, and you can learn how here.
Another idea is to register your child's carseat here so you can be alerted to any recalls.
