New car seat guide published

Friday 8th May 2015

A new parent’s guide to children’s car seats has been published to coincide with 2015 UN Global Road Safety Week.

The 12-page guide, ‘Car Safe Kids’, has been produced by Child Seat Safety and contains full answers to frequently asked questions, a series of key tips and other important information, and – produced in partnership with Which? - a 10-point checklist to fitting child car seats safely.

Claire Waterhouse, director of Child Seat Safety, said: “With more that 40 years’ combined experience in road safety we have lost count of the number of times we have provided parents with essential life-saving information about their children’s car seats that they just didn’t know before. 

“We check nearly 2,000 child car seats in vehicles every year and find over half have faults, many of which could be simply corrected or avoided.

“Car Safe Kids is designed to be a help and guide for parents-to-be and the 50% of parents whose children’s car seats have faults.

“It will be made available at all of our check-it and enforcement events, and to local authorities, schools, nurseries, doctors’ surgeries and others interested in helping parents through the car seat ‘minefield’.”

The guide is available at 40p per copy for quantities over 1,000 and 45p for smaller quantities (both prices plus p&p). Contact Child Seat Safety for more information or to order.
