    According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), many people who believe that they have the correct car seat for their child actually don’t. In addition, three out of four children in child safety seats aren’t properly secured or aren’t restrained at all because the seats have not been properly installed, notes the NHTSA.
