How do I use child restraints?

There is nothing more important than making sure that a child is safe when driving in your vehicle. Small children should always be in child restraint systems. Since there are so many different child restraint systems, refer to the restraint system’s owner’s manual to find the proper way to seat your child in the car.

Tip

Children under the age of 12 should always ride in the back seat, as studies have shown the front seats to be unsafe for children.
