Car Safety

When riding in a vehicle, it is crucial to keep your child's well being in mind by maintaining proper car seat safety. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children ages 3 to 14 in the United States. Children can get hurt if they are not properly restrained when riding in a vehicle. However, using an appropriate child safety seat is one way to prevent these injuries.

The type of safety seat your child needs depends on many factors. No one seat is "safest" or "best." The "best" child safety seat for a family is the one that is easy to use for the parents or caregivers, fits in the vehicle's seats, is compatible with the vehicle's seat belts, and is the proper size for the child, based on height and weight. If you would like your car seat checked or installed by one of our certified car seat technicians, please call 478-633-SAFE for an appointment.
