New Safety Report Recommends Car Seat Changes

Two recently published reports recommend rear facing child car seats until the child is two years old. These studies showed that children are 5 times less likely to be injured in a car crash if they are in a rear-facing car seat than a forward-facing seat, according to a 2007 analysis of five years of U.S. car crash data. The reports from The American Academy of Pediatrics and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration also recommended older children be placed in booster seats until the lap-shoulder belt fits them. Booster seats help position adult seat belts properly on a child’s smaller frame. Children usually can graduate from a booster seat when their height reaches 4 feet 9 inches. Both reports also recommend children younger than 13 ride in the back seat.
