WARNING: Are You Aware of the Hidden Car Seat Dangers?
AAA is warning parents of a serious car seat danger: They expire!
Kimberly Schwind with the agency says after an average of 6 years the car seat is no longer safe.
So, how can you be absolutely sure your child is safe?
Schwind says the expiration date should be listed on a label on the seat. But, it’s also a good idea to get your car seat checked by a professional just to be sure the seat is safe and installed correctly.
AAA offers checks as well as your local Job and Family Services Agency.
