Child car seat safety tips

Make sure your car seat will accommodate your child's:
- weight; and
Read your vehicle owner's manual
To find out:

A child car seat has an expiry date, and:
- reduces the risk of fatality by 71%; and

A child car seat is a one-time use safety item. If it is involved in a collision it must be replaced, even if your child wasn't in the seat at the time.
One of the most common mistakes is moving your child to the next car-seat stage too early. On average 86% of all child car seat installations are incorrect in Canada.
