The survey shows that one in five parents do not read any instructions when installing seats, which accounts for a lot of these mistakes. Still, 90% felt "confident" or "very confident" that their car seats and booster seats were installed correctly.
"Child safety seats save hundreds of young lives every year, but proper use is vital," states NHTSA Administrator David Strickland. "That's why we're urging everyone to make sure their kids are properly protected on every trip, every time."
"Baby car seats can significantly reduce the risk of death or injury in the event of a crash," adds Safe Kids President/CEO Kate Carr. "Engineers are working hard to ensure cars and car seats are designed to keep kids as safe as possible. But it's up to every parent to take full advantage of these innovations by making sure car seats are used and installed correctly."
According to this program, the best way to protect your children in the car is to put them "in the right seat, at the right time, and use it the right way."
To help parents ensure their child seats are installed and used correctly, Safe Kids and NHTSA are encouraging everyone to take 15 minutes to conduct an at-home checkup using a quick downloadable checklist from Safe Kids.
