5 facts about the safety of children in the car

1. According to the World Health Organization, car seats can reduce mortality in road accidents among babies up to 1 year by 71%, and among older children by 54%.

A child car seat is the most reliable means of protecting a baby in a car compared to any other child restraint devices: boosters, standard seat belts and adapters for them. Only it can protect the child from both frontal and side impacts at the time of sudden braking or maneuvers – provided that the chair is correctly installed (according to statistics, in most cases this is not so), and the crumb in it is securely fixed with straps.

2. During emergency braking at a speed of 50 km / h, the passenger’s weight increases by more than 30 times, and with it the force of impact.

This explains why any passenger unfastened in the car risks his life. Even a baby, which (as it seems) squeeze tightly enough to hold it under braking, at the moment of impact will weigh a centner and more, and will inevitably burst out of even the strongest hands.

3. Children should travel in car seats installed against the direction of travel, as long as possible.

Until the child is at least 1.5-2 years old, the child seat should be positioned against the vehicle’s travel. The baby’s neck is not able to withstand the high loads that occur at the time of the collision, if the child is sitting in a chair installed in the direction of motion.

If you are installing a child seat in the front seat, do not forget to turn off the airbag.

4. Children who are fastened in a car only with regular seat belts, in most cases, receive serious injuries to the abdominal organs.

If a baby rides in a car without a child seat, fastened only with regular belts, there is a great risk of injury to the abdomen for him. No adapters and control devices can protect against this: they simply shift the belt from the neck to the shoulder.

Prevent injuries to the neck and abdomen is only possible when using a car seat or at least a booster with a seat belt guide: special tabs on its seat will provide protection in the abdominal area.

5. During a trip in the car, it is better to give the child only soft toys to play.

Very often, passengers are injured when hitting the interior parts of the cabin or small objects inside. Given that at the time of the collision, the force of impact increases many times over, for a child, the risk of “attaching” his forehead to a toy machine made of metal or hard plastic can turn into a concussion.

All solid objects during movement need to be removed or fastened.

The first line of protection for people in a car is seat belts. They are important for adult passengers, and for children, whose car seats or boosters are fixed with regular belts. Volvo cars use seat belts with pretensioners and load limiters.

In the event of a collision or turning, the belts are activated and tightened in fractions of a second, limiting the displacement of the body. Then the front seat belt tension is slightly reduced so that the airbags can cushion the blow for the driver and passenger. A special sound and light alarm system for unbelted straps allows parents to always monitor whether the child is fastened.

Without even turning your head, an adult in the front seat can make sure that all the children sitting in their backs are fastened and nobody has unbuckled the seat belt while driving, using the information display of the instrument panel. At the same time, if it is important for the driver, the baby seat can also be installed in the front seat.

This will ensure reliable contact between the adult and the child and will allow everyone to feel calmer – which means that the driver will not have to be distracted from the situation on the road.

In Volvo cars for children who have not yet grown to full-time seat belts, but have already grown out of child seats, an integrated child seat is provided – a built-in booster cushion. It can serve as an alternative to the lining-booster, but has several advantages. The seat is height adjustable, allowing you to choose the position that more closely matches the height of the child.

At the expense of it the comfort of the kid and the correct work of seat belts is provided, reducing loading in case of collision. The built-in support cushion is easily retracted inside the back of the rear seat of the car, and does not take up space in the cabin.
