Car seats save lives when used properly
When you get in a vehicle with a child, it is vital that the child is secured properly. If you are involved in an accident, a child safety seat can mean the difference between life and death for the child. While you plan on driving safely, you can’t control the actions of the other drivers on the road. That means that you can’t prevent every accident from occurring.
Child safety seats
A child safety seat helps to protect the child in a number of ways. These seats help to absorb the impact of the accident and prevent the child from being crushed by the impact. The car seat also spreads the remaining force of the impact across the child’s entire body. They can help to stop the child from being thrown from the vehicle by holding the child in the seat.
Alabama, like most states, has specific laws that govern car seat use for children. The law includes a graduated car safety seat system that includes rear-facing seats, forward-facing seats, booster seats and seat belts.
