Child Restraint Re-use After Minor Crashes

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

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.
