Always Keep Car Seat Safety Top of Mind
A parent’s priority is always to keep their child safe, and that includes making sure they are in the right car seat for their age and size, and to make sure that car seat meets Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSSs).
Through a concerned law enforcement officer, we learned about a vehicle seat on the market that claimed to be FMVSS-certified, but was not. And while Little Passenger Seats (LPS) is no longer in business, the seats they made may still be available online. If you come across a car seat from the manufacturer, steer clear – it poses a safety risk to your child.
This may be a rare case, but it teaches us all an important lesson: Do the homework necessary to keep your kids safe in cars. Always check to make sure that your child is buckled up in the correct car seat for his or her age and size, and that the seat is installed correctly.
