The best place for parents to do some research on the best car seats and all the features that they are looking for, besides the manufacturer's websites that they can check, would be the National Highway Safety Administration website. They are currently putting together a list of which vehicles fit best with which car seats. That's a really good, safe resource that is not skewed to any particular place on which car seat is going to fit your car the best. Any place you live in the United States, you have access to a child inspection locator. You can also call your local highway patrol or state troopers to see if they have anybody that is qualified to help you with questions. As far as features that you want and you are questioning which car seat to buy, anywhere in United States you can go to www.seatcheck.org; which is on a piece of paper when you buy your car seat. You can ask them the question, too.

Amazed at how car seats and car seat safety has changed over the years, Cindy became a strong advocate for child passenger safety starting with her own grandchildren. Thousands of families later, she currently offers detailed hands-on training sessions for parents and caregivers. A parent needs to know how to customize and reinstall their car seat correctly and use it correctly for their child to have the best chance of surviving a crash. Vehicles are the number one killer of children under 16 years old. To Cindy, nothing is more important in protecting children on the move.
