Avoid Common Car Seat Mistakes

You should always observe safety whether you drive a truck, car or SUV in order to avoid auto accidents and auto collisions. Safety precautions should also be observed when it comes to children car seats. There are a lot of things to consider when you have children in the back seat. Even if we don’t intend to get involved in an auto accident or collision, the risk is still there. Miracle Body and Paint believes that it is better to prevent them from happening. We list down some common car seat mistakes people do:

  • Opting for a used car seat. Going for a used car seat is ok only if you first do thorough research to ensure that the used car seat still meets all safety standards. If you are unsure on its history, better go with a brand new one to be sure.
  • Positioning the car seat in the wrong location. A car seat should never ever be placed in the front seat as it will compromise the safety of the child.
  • Incorrectly installing the car seat. You have to ask yourself if you are 100% sure that your car seat is safely installed. If you are unsure, pay a visit a local fire or police department. They can help and assist you in proper car seat installation.
  • Moving to a booster seat too soon. Don’t be in a hurry to use a booster seat, experts recommend using a booster seat if the child is at least 4 years old.
  • Using the safety belt too soon. A child is not ready for a safety belt until he or she is in the 8 to 12 year old range.

Take the time to reflect if you have made one of these mistakes in the past. If so, it’s not too late to change and avoid doing the same error in the future.
