Doctors: Rear Facing Car Seats Safer for Kids

Ad Feedback

Some doctors in Great Britain are suggesting what they say is a safer method when it comes to protecting small children in the car.

A new study says that infants and small children should ride facing the rear until they are four-years-old.
Current guidelines suggest turning the child forward when they are one-year-old or 20-pounds.
This new guideline would extend that to three years.

"Some parents may turn child forward facing for personal reasons to interact with child. But when it comes to safety we hope they chose safety for the alternative," Kerry Chausmer, Director of certification, Safe Kids USA said.

The British doctors say that crash tests confirm that children sustain less injury in the rear facing position.
