Car Seat Safety Tips
Kids are only safe in a car when they are in the proper child restraint, used & installed correctly. Make sure your child is safe in his or her car seat:
Read your car manual and the manual for the child restraint.
Know the weight limit for your child restraint.
Send in the warranty card for the child restraint so you are on the list in case of a recall.
Destroy car seats that have been in a motor vehicle accident (MVA). Your auto insurance should cover a replacement under damages of the accident.
Expired car seats should be disposed of properly.
