Car Seats and Cars Not Always a Match

Some disturbing news coming out of the Ohio State University (OSU) College of Medicine today. According to an article on WRAL.com, many car seats aren’t compatible with cars they are installed in.

OSU researcher Julie Bing, who led the study, said pool noodles and other do-it-yourself fixes are needed to make seats fit.

“Roughly 35 percent of the time you would need that pool noodle or towel to kind of tip the seat back to where it belongs,” she said.

Before parents go shopping, Bing says they should measure the back seat of their vehicle to compare the dimensions with the different brands and models of seats. Parents should also ask to try it before they buy.

There is also professional help. In Wake County, certified child passenger safety technicians will provide free car seat checks at these locations and times:

  • Knightdale: Wednesday, September 16, 2015, in the Target parking lot, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
  • Raleigh: Thursday, September 17, 2015, at the Wake County Human Services Public Health Center (10 Sunnybrook Rd), from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
