Laura Reynolds: "Nearly half of kids killed in car accidents were not in a car seat or wearing a seatbelt too soon. September is Baby Safety Month and a new report from AAA shows we have a way to go to make road trips safer for kids. Experts recommend that you don’t skip the booster phase. A seatbelt’s fit depends on the kid’s height so your child may be too small for a seatbelt and would be safer in a booster seat. Most car seats can be used with a kid of up to 57 inches. Everyone in the car needs to either wear a seatbelt or be secured in a car seat or booster seat. If you don’t know which seat to use or how to install it, the fire department has got your back. Most fire stations have a designated person that can check if your child safety seat is installed correctly. Besides, what kid wouldn’t want to visit a fire station and look around while your child’s car seat is being checked out. You can also visit AAA.com to find more places that will check your car seat. With today’s Auto News, I’m Laura Reynolds."
