Data collected by National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) suggests as many as 75% of car seats on the road today are not properly installed. According to NHTSA, on average, 4 kids die in car crashes every day and more than 500 are injured. The risk, however, is dramatically decreased when a car seat is properly installed.
