The State Patrol and other transportation safety organizations of Colorado are ensuring children’s safety for Child Passenger Safety Week next week by informing parents of what is safe for their children when it comes to car seats.
Children under 1 year of age should always be placed in a rear-facing car seat, according to safety advocates. Front facing car seats are usually used for children that are 2 and older. Later in a child’s life, a booster seat is used, and they can start using a seat belt once it fits across their shoulder and lap comfortably and securely.
Some rules may change depending on the height and weight limit of each individual car and the state, however, parents should learn about how they must use safety seats securely to ensure their child is safe.
