Car Seat Safety

Person fastening an infant into a car seatMinnesota State Law requires that children under age eight, unless they are 4 feet and 9 inches or taller, must be in an appropriate, federally approved child safety seat or booster seat.

The proper use of car seats is one of the simplest and most effective methods available for protecting the lives of young children in the event of a motor vehicle crash. However, according to Safe Kids Worldwide, three out of four car seats are not installed properly. Taking the time to have your child's car seat checked may save their life.
