All parents want to give their children the best possible protection. In the car as well as everywhere else. Even so, children are still suffering injuries or even dying because of incorrectly fitted car seats, or because the type of child restraint they were using was wrong for their age, height and weight. Or-even worse-because they were travelling completely unrestrained in a car.
The cause of the problem is often simply a lack of knowledge. People sometimes think they have fitted a child seat correctly, when in fact they haven't. They may think that a child can safely switch from a rearward-facing seat to facing forwards when it is only one or two years old. When it shouldn't. They may think they have adjusted the safety belt correctly. When they haven't.
