3 Out of 4 Child Safety Seats Are Used Incorrectly
How To Make Sure Yours Is Not One of Them Purchasing wisely and installing Child Safety Seats correctly can be an ample challenge for anyone from the first time parents to the well seasoned caregiver. It wasn't until 1983 that the nation's first legal mandates for the use of child safety seats began to appear, so it's no surprise that the statistics indicate rampant misuse, however that doesn't make it acceptable. Safer New Mexico Now has been dedicated to curbing this alarming trend in partnership with the New Mexico Department of Transportation for over 25 years. It is our goal to empower parents and caregivers in New Mexico with the knowledge, tools, and services needed to ensure every New Mexico child is safe in and around the vehicle.
