The Culpeper, Virginia Star Exponent posted an article tiled Buckle Up – Baby. It was a short but very important article on child safety restraints in vehicles. According to the National Highway Safety Administration, three out of every four parents improperly install or use child safety restraints in their car. In response to such a problem and alarming statistic, hospitals and police departments around the nation offer a child safety seat course or check. Most classes are free or charge a minimal fee for this most important service. Parents often times spend a lot of money on car safety seats. In addition to the time and expense in purchasing a seat, parents should take the time, effort, and money to make sure that the car seat is properly installed and utilized. If you have any concerns or doubts about the installation or use of a car safety seat for a child, get help and advice from experts trained in the field. Simple safety precautions can help prevent serious personal injuries and even death to a child when there is an automobile accident.
