Because safety is such an important issue, our infographic shows people how to fit a car seat, as having it fitted properly could ultimately be the difference in avoiding a life-threatening injury.

According to recent data released by the breakdown firm the AA, around 50% of car seats are not properly installed. However, recent research by Car Loan 4U suggests that 78% of parents believe that their children’s car seat is installed correctly, which means that 12% of parents believe that they are using a car seat which is not correctly installed.

In the UK it is a legal requirement that all children being transported in a vehicle must use the correct child restraint until they are either 135cm tall or have reached the age of 12 – yet 70% of parents admitted that they struggled to find any safety information on the subject.

Car Loan 4U recently published an infographic titled 'Become a Car Seat Safety Champion' designed to help save lives for anyone wanting to transport young children in a car, as well as the practicalities of installing a children’s car seat safely.

Car Loan 4U Managing Director James Wilkinson, comments:

“Making sure that your car seat is properly installed is such an important issue towards the safety of your children when driving on the road, but as these conflicting statistics show, it is very confusing for parents.

“Only a small minority of parents in the UK admitted that it was easy to find information about how to install a car seat and even worse, many felt that they were misinformed about the regulations.

“Because safety is such an important issue, our infographic shows people how to fit a car seat, as having it fitted properly could ultimately be the difference in avoiding a life-threatening injury.”
