Child Safety in Cars Watertown NY

All children age 12 and under are almost always safer riding in the back seat. Infants under 1 year old and under 20 pounds should ride in an infant only rear-facing safety seat (which offers the best protection for the infant's neck), while children under 1 year old but over 20 pounds should ride in a rear-facing convertible child safety seat rated for larger infants.

While the use of child restraints is up in the U.S. (restraint use has increased from just over 50% to nearly 72% since the mid-1990s for children under 60 pounds),

a recent government study (conducted by the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or NHTSA) shows that nearly 73% of child restraints are misused. It is very important to make sure your children are properly secured when driving, so this article will examine ways to make sure your child is as safe as he or she can be.

Infants Under 1 Year Old
Never put an infant in the front seat of an automobile that has a passenger air bag. All children age 12 and under are almost always safer riding in the back seat. Infants under 1 year old and under 20 pounds should ride in an infant only rear-facing safety seat (which offers the best protection for the infant's neck), while children under 1 year old but over 20 pounds should ride in a rear-facing convertible child safety seat rated for larger infants. Harness straps should be at or below the infant's shoulders, and should fit snugly, lying in a relatively straight line without any sagging. The harness chest clip should be placed at the infant's armpit level, keeping the harness straps properly positioned.

Toddlers Over 1 Year Old And Between 20 And 40 Pounds
Children over 1 year old who weigh between 20 and 40 pounds can ride in a forward-facing child safety seat (still in the back seat of your car). Experts agree that children should ride in a safety seat with a harness until they weight at least 40 pounds. The same harness levels and rules as mentioned in the previous paragraph also apply for these safety seats.
