Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) Restraint System


You'll remember my post about supporting The NHTSA's Child Passenger Safety. It is good to know how to keep our families safe, especially in today's world where everyone is so distracted. I hope you will all recheck to ensure that your children are safe in their seats when driving.

According to a NHTSA study, 3 out of 4 kids are not as secure in the car as they should be because their car seats are not being used correctly. The LATCH system (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) was developed to make it easier to correctly install car seats.

The NHTSA would like readers to know that there are wonderful resources
available for free to help them make safe choices about car seats and
to help them use their car seats properly for maximum safety.

Twitter
An actual safety expert mans the @ChildSeatSafety
account on Twitter, and they will continue to answer any questions
that parents have about child passenger safety.  This is such a unique
resource from a government agency!

Facebook:
NHTSA has a Facebook page at
http://facebook.com/childpassengersafety where parents can learn about
everything from LATCH to locating inspection offices.

Website: 
The Ad Council and the
NHTSA have created a site with all the resources parents need to keep
their smallest passengers safe: http://childcarsafety.adcouncil.org/
Find your local inspection station, watch instructional videos, and
even take a fun quiz!

Recheck and see if your child is a bit safer in their seat. It is better than saying 'if only...'

Not sure which child safety seat to use?
