NHTSA Reiterates Its Warning To Use Rear Facing Car Seats
Recently, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reissued its warning to use rear facing child seats until the age of three.
The rear facing seats are meant to protect the youngest passengers in your vehicle. Additionally, children in this age group should never be placed in the front seating area. The rear facing seats are meant to prevent ejection from a vehicle, while placing your child in the rear seat will prevent injury from airbags. Airbags are designed to protect adults only and may injure or kill young children.
The NHTSA feels so strongly about these warnings that this has become a yearly reminder warning. Your children are your most important legacy. Why not protect them in every way possible.
