Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among children, due in large part to the nonuse or improper use of child safety seats and seat belts.  Child safety seats and booster seats save lives.  They offer the absolute best protection for children in the event of a crash. 

 

Child Restraint Re-use After Minor Crashes

Always read and follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for your child’s safety seat. Some manufacturers always recommend that a child safety seat be replaced after any crash.Contact the manufacturer for guidance.

Questions from People like YOU:

What is the life span of a car seat?
Every car seat is required to have an expiration date. Typically, seats last 6 years, but every seat is different. Always check your car seat's manual.

What if I have a two year old who is to big for his car seat, can they use the booster seat or do we still have to try to use the car seat?
If a child is too big for their current car seat, by weight or height, that seat is no longer appropriate. We recommend using a combination forward facing seat that typically has higher limited harnesses to use as long as possible before changing to a booster seat.
