Our Mark Martin Motors associates welcome the opportunity to help Manheim, PA drivers and their passengers stay safe. When you're shopping for a child safety seat, it's important that you choose the right one for your child's weight and age and that you install it correctly.

Infants need rear-facing safety seats, and most toddlers will use forward-facing car seats. It's vital that you keep your child in a rear-facing seat as long as possible to optimize safety. A booster seat is for older children and uses the seat belt to secure the stronger parts of a child's body.

Be sure to reference your owner's manual to install the seat correctly and also check for tethers. Many newer vehicles are equipped with tethers that are designed to keep car seats in the correct position. After you've installed your child's seat, you can sign up for e-mail alerts with the NHTSA, which will alert you regarding child safety seat recalls.
