30 Sep Car Seat Safety Tips from NHTSA Officials (Pt. 2)
Continuing from where we left off in Car Seat Safety Tips from NHTSA Officials (Pt. 1), below we will resume our discussion of some important info parents should know when it comes to car seat safety for their children.
In addition to using the right car seat for a child and registering the car seat, other car seat safety tips for parents include:
- Promptly responding to all recalls on child car seats – It’s not enough for parents to know about car seat recalls; they have to respond to them. Therefore, the NHTSA is reminding parents that, if they receive info about a recall on their child’s car seat, they should immediately respond to the recall, following the directions on the recall notice.
- Making sure you know how to use your child’s car seat – While it may be obvious to some parents, it’s still worth stressing – figure out how to properly use the car seat and follow the directions for using it every time you strap your child into the seat. If you are unsure about whether you are properly use your child’s car seat, you can visit a Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician, who can inspect the car seat and, if necessary, show you how to properly use it.
- Always setting a good example by wearing your seatbelt – Instilling good habits in children is a part of parenting in general, and it also applies in the case of automobile and driving safety. Whenever you may be riding in a car, make sure you make it a habit to wear your seatbelt. This sets a good example for children and helps instill in them the good habit of buckling up every time they ride in cars.
Along with these car seat safety tips, the Don’t Delay. Register Your Child’s Car Seat Today campaign is urging parents to pledge their commitment online at the NHTSA’s website (here) and to share their car seat safety efforts through social media.
