Child Passenger Safety for Your Family

Car seat BeeI recently wrote about my recommendations for a child’s car seat–describing the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s efforts to provide more comprehensive regulations for side impact crash testing.

Since then, I learned about a plethora of free resources available to help parents make safe choices about car seats, and to help them use their car seats properly for maximum safety.

In Charlottesville (and Albemarle county), you can set up an appointment with the Albemarle County Department of Fire and Rescue for a complimentary car seat installation.  Contact them by e-mail carseats@albemarle.org or by phone (434) 531-6614.  Also, check out the downloadable pdf instruction guide for child passenger safety.

Stay in-the-know

Follow @ChildSeatSafety on Twitter, where a safety expert from the NHTSA responds to direct messages and publishes relevant tweets.  You can ask any questions about child passenger safety.

You can become a fan of the NHTSA on Facebook to learn about everything from LATCH to locating your local inspection office.

The Ad Council and the NHTSA have teamed up to produce a website with all the resources parents need to keep their smallest passengers safe.  You can locate the nearest inspection station to you, and watch instructional videos.
