Selecting, installing and registering child safety seats have just become a bit easier.
Rose White with Triple-A Nebraska says the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration launched a new app that is designed to provide caregivers and parents information about selecting, installing and registering child safety seats. If the seat is registered manufacturers will be able to contact owners in the event of a recall. The new app is available for both apple and android users and download information can be found at SafeCar.gov.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that every 34 seconds a child under the age of 13 is involved in a car crash and more than one-third of children killed in crashes were not in car seats or wearing a safety belt.
