A properly installed child car seat reduces the risk of fatality by 71% and the risk of serious injury by 67% (Transport Canada). Yet, an estimated 46% of car seats and booster seats are misused, making them ineffective in protecting your most important passengers.
Protect Your Most Important Passenger - BlackboxMyCar and a Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician can help!
According to a study, the most common errors were:
- Incorrect recline angle for rear-facing car seats
- Loose installation for all car seats
- Loose harness for all car seats
- Harness behind child’s arms, legs, or back in forward-facing car seats
- Improper lap belt position for booster seats
- Improper shoulder belt position for booster seats
What can you do to protect your most important passenger
If you have a car seat in your vehicle, visit your local Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician to double-check that it is installed correctly.
