Keeping Your Kids Safe On The Road
Most parents are in favor of a law designed to protect kids on the road, but they don't know how to follow it.
AAA recently found that as many as 8 out of 10 children were not secured in their car seat safely.
Additionally, as few as 24 percent of parents thought it was necessary to put their kids in a booster seat when they outgrow their car seat.
The automotive agency recommends kids ride in a car seat until they are between 30-35 pounds.
Then they suggest a booster seat until they are four feet 9 inches tall.
Even though 85 percent of drivers say they are in favor of safety requirement laws for children, more educational outreach may be needed to make sure people know how to keep their kids safe.
AAA released their findings as part of child passenger safety week.
To make sure you are installing your seat correctly read through your manual thoroughly.
