When one vehicle collides with another, the damages go far beyond that of broken headlights and smashed glass.
Every car crash has three stages!
The first stage is the car crashing into something. Then comes the second when the people inside the car crash into the car’s interior. Hopefully the seat belt and air-bags!
Then comes the third and last stage, where our internal organs are banging into each other and into our ribcage, and our brain is banging around in our skull.
To minimise the damage done to us we must wear our seatbelts, and our children must be properly secured in their age appropriate car restraint!
The safest position for your child, is the rear facing position. It does not matter what age we are, rear facing will always be safer.
There are a large market for rear facing car seats. I have them all on the top menu under “Extended Rear Facing Car Seats” and you can also find the “budget seats” under “The Cheaper Car Seats”.
