Why You Need to Have Your Child in the Right Car Seat

It is against the law to let your children ride without a safety seat if they are under a certain weight. Although most parents are diligent about keeping their children secured in a car seat, they may not have their children in the proper car seat for their age and size. At West Herr Chrysler Jeep in Orchard Park, NY, we want you to keep your children safe, which is why we have offered some car seat tips below.

Always keep children under the age of one in a rear-facing car seat. This will help keep their spinal cords and necks protected and try to keep them rear-facing for as long as possible. If your child is a toddler, a forward-facing car seat with a safety harness is probably appropriate. Older children can ride in a booster seat that uses your car's safety belt to secure them in place.
