Know the proper child car seat safety for your N Charlotte Toyota!

One of the most important parts about child passenger safety is ensuring your child is safe and secure in the correct child car seat. Toyota of N Charlotte is sharing tips on how to choose the right car seat for your child and how to properly install it.
  • When picking a child’s car seat, it is dependent on the age and weight of the child. Generally infants and toddlers and children up to 3 years old should be secured into a rear-facing seat. Children 4 to 7 years old need to be in a front-facing seat and once they’ve surpassed the height and weight limits set by the manufacturers, children should be transitioned to a booster seat. Only when the seatbelt fits correctly should the child be secured with just a seatbelt.
  • It’s crucial to install a child’s car seat correctly and securely. When installing it, be sure to follow directions precisely. If you’re hesitant about doing it properly, you can bring your car and car seat to your local fire station or police department and have a firefighter or police officer install it for you!
