The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety evaluated LATCH systems in 170 vehicles. LATCH stands for Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children. The United States has required LATCH in rear seats since 2002. But the institute says many systems are hard to use, which makes it more likely that child seats will be incorrectly installed.
This new child seat not only makes it easier for parents but also safe for children. Volvo ascertains that forward facing child seats could pose a problem for children between the ages of 3 or 4 due to the disproportionate size of a child’s head along with lack of muscular strength in the neck.
BINGHAMTON, NY– According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among children ages 2 to 14, due in large part to the nonuse or improper use of child safety seats and seat belts. In Broome County, over 60% of the child safety seats that are inspected by Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians are used or installed incorrectly.
Volvo Cars’ new-generation child seats are made with a more breathable and comfortable upholstery comprised of 80% wool textile which makes the seats smoother to the touch, highly durable, and better-performing in both hot and cold climates. The seats also have a slimmer design aimed at increasing legroom and overall comfort.
