Chrysler Group Statement On Child Safety Seats

Check on the safety of your child seat ...

"Recent news has focused on the safety of children while traveling in automobiles. Research shows seven out of 10 kids in child safety seats are not properly buckled in and a properly installed safety seat has been proven to reduce fatal injury by 71 percent for infants and 54 percent for toddlers, ages 1-4.

DaimlerChrysler's SeatCheck program provides parents and caregivers with access to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's comprehensive child passenger safety seat inspector locater database.

By logging onto or calling 1-866-SeatCheck, parents can learn about child passenger safety and where to have their child's seat inspected.

The following statement can be attributed to Deborah Morrissett - Vice President - Regulatory Affairs, Chrysler Group:

"Child passenger safety seat inspections are simple and can help save a child's life. DaimlerChrysler encourages parents to visit or call 1-866-SEATCHECK to learn how and where to have their child's safety seat inspected for proper fit and use.

SeatCheck provides parents and caregivers with access to the most comprehensive list of certified child passenger safety seat instructors in the country in both English and Spanish.

With an all-new Web site, SeatCheck also offers a variety of child passenger safety resources, including state law look-up and current list of manufacturer recalled child safety seats."    (Continued via Safety Online)    [Ergonomics Resources]
