Federal agency fails to protect motorists from breaking car seats

Auto crash experts believe that the federal auto safety standard, which has remained largely unchanged for over a decade, fails to protect motorists from serious and fatal injuries caused by car seats breaking during moderate to high speed read end collisions.

According to auto crash expert Alan Cantor, the car seat standards set by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are minimal and do very little to protect consumers. NHTSA representatives have also noted the need for stronger standards, but no changes have been made.

Research data has confirmed that children are at a high risk of injury or death due to this issue. Of the average 470 children who are injured in car accident every day, eleven percent are riding in the back seat at the time of the accident. While this placement is in accordance with the NHTSA’s safety recommendations, it actually increases the risk of injury in a specific type of collision.
