Child Car Seats Evaluated

Posted on Sep 08, 2010
   Some child booster seats are just not "up" to par, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Of the 72car seats evaluated by the IIHS, 36 fall short and 8 are not recommended.

   In some cases, shoulder belts fell off the shoulder or were too close to a child's neck, or lap belts were too high on a child's stomach.

   Other seats, however, were recommended as "good bets" or "best bets."
