Car accidents in Georgia and elsewhere in the United States are still the leading cause of death for small children, Recognizing that child safety should always be a top priority, the National Highway Traffic Administration has proposed new changes to child car seat requirements.
The new FMVSS 213 rules will make the following changes:
The majority of car seats weigh between 12 to 20 pounds, with some weighing up to 30 pounds. Because the combined weight of the child and car seat has to be taken into account, the anchors are being questioned for heavier children and for combined weights over 65 pounds. The new label would specify a maximum child weight for using lower LATCH anchors.
It is critical that parents of young children follow these rules, as approximately 70 percent of children are not restrained properly in cars, according to the Georgia Child Safety Passenger Headquarters.
