September is National Child Passenger Safety Awareness Month, and Nissan has 10 child passenger safety tips for drivers transporting little loved ones. Did you know all of these tips? Number 8 is one that many people don't realize, and it's an important one.
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.
“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.
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.
