THE RIGHT AND WRONG WAY TO RIDE IN A VEHICLE

RIGHT WAY

RIGHT WAY WRONG WAY
Picture on left shows proper fit of the combination of an adult safety belt with a child booster seat. By raising the child, the booster seat allows the lap belt to be properly positioned low across the lap, while the shoulder belt is over the collarbone and away from the neck. In the event of a crash, the child would be properly secured. Picture on the right shows why booster seats are needed to make adult-size safety belts work properly. Without the booster seat, the safety belt is incorrectly positioned over the stomach and across the neck. In the event of an accident, this could cause serious injury. Utilizing a booster seat also allows for a more comfortable ride for a child.
