The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has created a program, in partnership with State, tribal, and local agencies, where families can go to get their child car seats checked. Motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death for children in this country. Car seats can greatly reduce the risk of dying for infants and young children. Car seats have saved the lives of more than 10,000 children over the past 40 years, but many children are not using the correct car seat for their age and size, and many seats are not installed properly, reducing their effectiveness. Getting your car seat checked by a safety professional could help save your child's life.
