It is important to ensure that your child’s car seat is properly installed. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) conducted a traffic study from crashes involving children. Of the 3,500 child restraint systems analyzed in their study, they discovered that approximately 72 percent were not installed correctly. This was credited to many reasons, including too many harnesses, confusing design, too cumbersome and too time consuming to install.
