For day 3 of this week’s Road Safety Tip I have chosen the high back booster.
This especially because I see so many children in it that really do need to be harnessed because of age and also because there is a lot of misuse that you might thing of as small, but that in a collision, will matter a great deal.
The High Back Booster is the last car seat group, and it’s important to know that for every step up in group, your child takes a step down in safety. They are safest using their car seats until they are fully outgrown, don’t be hasty to change them out of a car seat just because they have reached the minimum weight or age requirement for the next seat.
