Child Car Seats Not Holding Up In Crash Tests

Comments Off

The Virginia-based Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute found Wednesday that 13 booster seats don’t put children in the best position to be protected in a crash. The seats were found to have problems with their belting systems.

The identified seats were:

Compass B505, Compass B510, Cosco/Dorel Traveler, Evenflo Big Kid Confidence, Safety Angel Ride Ryte, Cosco/Dorel Alpha Omega, Cosco/Dorel (Eddie Bauer) Summit, Cosco Highback Booster, Dorel/Safety 1st (Eddie Bauer) Prospect, Evenflo Chase Comfort Touch, Evenflo Generations, Graco CarGo Zephyr, and Safety 1st/Dorel Intera.

In protecting our most important cargo, it is imperative that the right seat be chosen and the the seat be properly installed. Your local police station should have bi annual car child seat inspection days. Call them and find out when the next one is.

InjuryBoard member Devon Glass also has the helpful suggestion that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration can be contacted for helpful information.
