New Resources and Tools for Child Passenger Safety #MYWHY



This week is designated as Child Passenger Safety Week by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)

I'm happy to share that they have added lot of new tools available online to help you find the right seat for your child, easily locate Child Passenger Safety events and certified Child Passenger Safety technicians who can help you check your car seat or install one the right way!
 
Find a Car Seat: All you need is their birth date, weight, and height. Once entered, your information will provide you with car seat type results that fit your child according to NHTSA's best practice recommendations. Find your right seat here.
Car Seat Registration: When you register your car seat with the manufacturer, you'll be notified about any recalls that affect your car seat. Just select manufacturer and brand and you'll be guided as to where you need to go. Find the registration tool here.

Child Passenger Safety Techs and Events: It's so easy to find a certified tech or Child Passenger Safety event! You can search by State or search by zip code to locate events and techs nearest you. Seat Check Saturday is a great chance to get your car seat checked out or installed the right way. Find a tech or event here.
Spanish Website: Everything on our Right Seat website is now available in Spanish. That means the Find a Car Seat and Registration tool, along with all our other resources, can be found en Español.
If you're on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, join the discussions by telling NHTSA who your why is for registering your car seat or getting your car seats checked. Use #mywhy to let them know! You can use their Vines and encourage friends to say who their reason is for registering their car seats.
Visit Parents Central for more info and tips on everything from car seats to teen drivers.
