Today is National Seat Check Saturday which is aimed at building awareness and safety regarding child passengers. Studies show that automobile accidents are the leading cause of death for children 3-14 years of age.
Follow the link below to find out the 1-2-3-4 progression of child seats as your infant grows from toddler to tween. There is also a national registry where you can be notified of any defects or recalls on your child safety seat.
The National Highway Safety Administration also offers local sites where certified technicians will inspect and verify (for free) your child seat's proper installation. Click HERE to find the inspection station nearest you.
