Car Seat Safety Clinic
Location: Franciscan Health Michigan City
301 West Homer Street
Michigan City, IN 46360
According to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), three out of four parents install child safety seats the wrong way. This clinic is to help parents properly install child safety seats in their vehicles.
The source of most mistakes stems from the myriad of differences in cars and seats, and some are just incompatible with the other. Seats should be anchored properly, with no more than 1-inch of movement in any direction once the seat is anchored in the vehicle.
The NTSB and pediatricians recommend that seats be installed rear-facing for as long as the child and fit properly.
