Child Safety Seats – Be A Pro!

“Some 3 out of 4 child safety seats are not used correctly. The correct installation of child safety seats is often very confusing to parents, grandparents and caregivers. Changing technology in vehicles and child safety seats adds to this confusion.”  ~ Wisconsin Department of DMV For more information and video tutorials http://wisconsindot.gov/Pages/safety/education/child-safety/default.aspx
