Helpful tips about safety seats...
*Use child safety seats and/or safety belts correctly every time you ride. Restrain children ages 12 and under in a back seat.
*Infants, until at least 1 year old and at least 20 pounds, should be in a rear-facing child safety seat. Never put a rear-facing infant or convertible safety seat in the front passenger seat of a vehicle with an active passenger air bag.
*Children over 1 year old and between 20 and 40 pounds should be in forward-facing child safety seats. In addition, children ages 4 to 8 (about 40 to 80 pounds) should be in a car booster seat and restrained with lap/shoulder belt every time they ride.
*Read your child safety seat instruction manual and your motor vehicle owner’s manual for directions on proper installation.
