Car Seat Safety 101 From Curry Honda Atlanta

Car seats are necessary to protect children in the event of an accident, but many parents and caregivers don't know how to properly install a child seat. There are rear-facing, forward-facing, and booster seats, and each type of car seat is designed for children at different stages of development.

Rear-facing car seats are for infants to toddlers. For maximum safety, it is advised to keep your child in a rear-facing car seat for as long as possible. Forward-facing car seats are for children ranging from 3 to 7, and booster seats are appropriate for children ages 8-12.

Be sure to inspect a new car seat before it's installed, and you should also consult your car seat's owner's manual for specific installation instructions. If your vehicle is equipped with a tether, which secures forward-facing car seats, then be sure to use it for enhanced protection. The NHTSA advises to always use a tether (if available) with a forward-facing car seat.
