How booster seats save childrens' lives
Did you know?
Without a booster seat, a child is 3.5 times more likely to suffer from a head injury in a collision
When should a child use a booster seat?
Once a child reaches the maximum weight or height limit of their forward-facing car seat, as stated by the manufacturer, he/she can move into a booster seat.
- Booster seats are easy to install and generally have a low purchase price
- Without a booster seat, an adult seat belt can potentially ride up too high on the child's stomach or neck causing serious internal injuries in the event of a crash
- A booster seat helps position the lap belt portion of the seatbelt over the strongest bones (the hips), not across the soft abdomen
- Booster seats help place the shoulder belt across the child's chest, preventing the upper body and head from moving forward during a collision
