Why is correct car seat installation important?

As a parent, you know the importance of putting your child in a car seat every time he or she rides in a vehicle. However, what you may not realize is that incorrectly installing the car seat or putting your child into the seat wrong could put your child at risk or even increase the risk for injuries in a crash. That is why it is essential for you and all parents in Georgia to learn about proper installation and use of car seats before using them.

When a car seat is properly installed and your child is properly secured into the seat, it acts as a restraint system that cushions and protects the child in the event of an accident. According to US News and World Report, the top mistake made when installing car seats is not tightening them up. This means both not tightening the seat belt that is holding it in the vehicle and not tightening the harness on your child. A loose seat could fly about the interior of the vehicle in a high impact situation. If the harness is not secure, it could injure your child or allow him or her to slip out of the seat.

Another common issue is keeping a car seat rear-facing. The current recommendation is to keep kids rear-facing until they are two years old. This position offers more protection for the neck, spine and head of a child, which is highly underdeveloped at this age.
