Your Children Must Always be in Car Seats

Too often I see kids standing up to the car, looking out the back window or just sitting on laps. Do parents know that in an accident the body of an unrestrained child becomes a projectile, bouncing around inside the car? A child could be thrown from car or by a window or windshield and fatally injured, and lives a car can hurt a child and impacting their heads or necks. Apparently, some people still also gotten the message.

Are car seats too expensive? Or people just plain lazy?

There are various types of car seats, usually different depending on the size, age or weight of the child. Remember to buy a new car seat - old car seats may not have the latest safety features or may was compromised in an accident.

Child car seats - just behind the face, commonly used in the back seat, can be used as an infant carrier and may attachable to a stroller.

Convertible car seats - Used in the back, when your child gets older may be replaced with a forward-facing seat a car or even a booster seat.

Booster seats - the last step before your child can wear a regular seat belt, seatbelt used with the car's.

It is important that you follow the manufacturers instructions about how to attach the car seat. Also, you always want to send the car registration form Seat's, so you are notified when a manufacturer recalls the seat for any inaccuracies. If your child is wearing a heavy coat, make certain that the harness straps are tight. Be sure to tighten the straps when your child wears fewer clothes (when the weather warms up). Some agencies recommend safety removing dress your child in the car, so that children can be safely fastened to the seat of the vehicle.

Never re-use a car seat after a serious accident - one that causes serious damage to the car. Get a new one.

Common car seat mistakes:

Placing children in the wrong size car seat for his weight / size;

Placing a rear-facing car seat in the front seat of a car;

Not sure the harness is tightened correctly;

Positioning the harness chest clip incorrectly;

Not using the latch correctly.

Not just a safety issue, it is law. Below I summarize the New York Vehicle and Traffic Law, Section 1229-c. For specific questions, consult the law. No person shall operate a motor vehicle in this state unless:

(1) all back seat passengers under the age of four are restrained in a specially designed chair which is either permanently affixed or is attached to the vehicle as a safety belt,

(2) all back seat passengers of such vehicles with age four or older but under age seven are restrained with an appropriate child restraint system (+ combination lap and shoulder harness belts)

(3) all front seat passengers (a) under the age of 16 are restrained by a safety belt, or (b) if they are under the age of four, with a special designed seat which is either permanently affixed or attached to the vehicle as a safety belt, or children age four or older but under age seven were restrained in an appropriate child restraint system (+ combination lap and shoulder harness belts)

The rules change if somewhat: the four passengers or younger weighs over 40 lbs, or if the car is not equipped with shoulder harness belts, or if all lap and shoulder belts are used to other children in the car

No person shall operate a motor vehicle unless such person is restrained by an approved safety belt. No person 16 years or over still should be a front seat passenger motor vehicle unless such person is restrained by a safety belt approved.

This section should not apply to taxis, liveries, and other buses to school buses EXCEPT no person shall operate a school bus unless all passengers under the age of four are restrained in a specially designed detachable or removable seat, or other approved restraining device.
