NHTSA Releases New Child Seat Guidelines

Traffic Safety Information

 

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued safety guidelines for child seats in automobiles. Under the guidelines, the safety agency recommends using the restraints in the rear-facing position as long as children fit within the height and weight limits of the car seat as established by the manufacturer. The rear-facing position reduces stresses to the neck and spinal cord and is particularly important for growing babies. The guidelines advise parents to keep kids in rear facing restraints until two years of age.

“Safety is our highest priority,” said Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. “The ‘best’ car seat is the one that fits your child, fits your vehicle and one you will use every time your child is in the car.”
