Driving Tips: Child Safety | ACDelco

In order to help provide a safer environment for your most precious cargo, ACDelco offers the following driving tips for parents with small children.

General Child Safety Tips

  • Secure all children under the age of 13 in a rear seat.
  • Infants and young children need the protection of a properly installed child restraint or booster seat.
  • Never put a rear-facing child restraint seat in the front vehicle seat, as it can cause serious injury or death in the event of an accident and the deployment of the air bag.
  • It is best to install a forward-facing child restraint seat in rear vehicle seats. If this isn’t possible for your vehicle, carefully read your Owner’s Manual to understand how to best install a forward-facing restraint in the front vehicle seat.

LATCH System: Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children

  • LATCH System helps simplify the installation of child restraint seats.
  • Compatible with both forward- and rear-facing child seats.

Booster Seats

  • A booster seat should be used if a child weighs between 80 and 100 pounds and is less than 4'10" in height.
  • Only use a backless booster seat if your car’s seatback is higher than your child’s ear and has a head restraint. Otherwise, use a high-back booster seat.
  • You should also check your state law mandates on booster seats for complete details of usage.
