Safety seats do work

Arrive Alive quotes several studies in the United States as saying that child safety seats that are correctly installed and used for children aged 0-4 years, can reduce the need for hospitalization by 69%.

The risk of death for infants is reduced by 70% and children between 1-4 years by up to 54%.

Child restraints and baby chairs:
* reduce the risk of being thrown about the car in the event of sudden braking or an accident
* prevent children from being ejected from the car
* stop children from moving around the car and distracting the driver.

According to Arrive Alive, the safest place to put your child is on the back seat. Never let him sit in the front, especially if you have airbags.

Child restraints are specifically designed to match a child's height and weight.

Birth - 1 year:
Use an appropriate baby chair and place it in the rear facing position, on the back seat. It's difficult to check on your baby if you can't see him, but there are some fantastic mirrors made specifically to allow you and your baby to see each other.

1-4 years:
An appropriate car chair, facing forward, should protect the child's head from frontal and side impact. Safety belts and harnesses should fit well and be properly positioned.

4-6 years:
Booster seats are best as they raise the child's seating position, allowing the safety belt to fit better.

6-11 years:
A booster seat helps a child who is still too small to use an adult safety belt properly.
