How do I use a child restraint?

Child restraints are very important safety features. You should never drive with a small child in the vehicle unless they are in a child restraint. A child should be able to sit all the way back in the seat, and have their knees bend at the seat edge, if they’re going to be in the vehicle without a child restraint. Child restraints come in multiple different styles. After purchasing one, consult the restraint owner’s manual to determine how to use it with your vehicle.
