Thursday Tips: National Child Passenger Safety Month

Happy Thursday all! For your Thursday Tip today, we are taking a look at safety.

September is National Child Passenger Safety Awareness Month, and Nissan has 10 child passenger safety tips for drivers transporting their kids.

As reported by Nissan earlier in the month,

"Nissan safety engineers spend thousands of hours evaluating child safety seats by installing them in the rear seats of current Nissan and INFINITI vehicles. The result is the Snug Kids Child Safety Seat Fit Guide, which helps parents confidently select a child restraint system that best fits their vehicle.

Not all car seats fit in all vehicles, and choosing the appropriate child restraint system can be confusing. Nissan’s Snug Kids program exists to help make that process easier. Launched in 2002, Snug Kids is an industry-first car seat installation program explicitly geared toward child passenger safety.

“Passenger safety is at the core of everything we do at Nissan. Our Snug Kids® team of certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians performs more than 6,400 car seat checks in our vehicles each year to help ensure a proper fit,” said Brandon Sanders, Nissan product safety engineer.

“I’m often asked which car seat is the best, and my response is the one you can install and use correctly every time,” Sanders says.
 
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), car crashes are a leading cause of death for children ages one to 13. Many of these deaths could be prevented with the proper use of child restraint systems or child safety seats.
 
Nissan Product Safety Engineer Brandon Sanders reminds all parents and caregivers to read their child restraint system’s owner’s manual to ensure proper installation and use of of car seats and boosters."
