Help for Search for Correct Child Seat Size

        NHTSA launches car seat search tool. The Chicago Tribune (9/20, 2.26M) reports on National Seat Check Saturday, today, which “aims to curb” the “preventable deaths” that come from improper installation of child safety seats. NHTSA figures show that “over 33 percent of children killed in 2012 were not properly buckled in,” but correctly buckling in a child in the appropriate car seat “can reduce the risk of serious and fatal injuries by over 70 percent for infants and 45 percent for grade school children.”
        Cars (9/20, 380K) reports, NHTSA “just launched its Car Seat Fin,” which is a search tool “that makes selecting the correct car-seat style a lot easier.”
