GREEN BAY, Wis., Feb. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/
The staff at Le Mieux & Son Toyota is recommending helpful child car seat installation resources to area drivers this spring. Free car seat checks are provided by a variety of businesses in the Green Bay area, all of which are listed in Le Mieux & Son Toyota's latest blog post. Every car seat is different and it's important that a seat be the right size for the individual child and installed the right way for the vehicle.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration finds that most child car seats are incorrectly installed. Even more concerning is the fact that car crashes are the leading cause of death for children 12 years of age and younger.
One of the best ways to ensure that a car seat is correctly installed and maintained is to get it checked by a Child Passenger Safety technician. These professionals are certified by Safe Kids Worldwide and check the overall fit of the seat and walk drivers through how to safely buckle it into a vehicle.
Le Mieux & Son Toyota reminds drivers to never reuse a car seat that went through a car accident as it may be unsafe. Similarly, Le Mieux recommends drivers steer clear of hand-me-down seats or those purchased second-hand. It's always best to buy a car seat new.
