CAR-SEAT CHECKS SAVE LIVES

DaimlerChrysler, in partnership with Fisher-Price and the National Safety Council, announced in June 1999 that it would offer its customers free child-safety seat inspections through its dealer network. The program expanded in February 2000, and now certified Fit for a Kid inspectors at DaimlerChrysler dealers inspect child-safety seats in any vehicle, not just DaimlerChrysler vehicles. The National Transportation Safety Board urged automakers in January 1999 to create permanent child-safety seat fitting stations so parents and caregivers have an easily recognizable and accessible place for help installing car seats properly. A case study relates how changes made at one inspection station saved the life of a 21-month-old girl one week later.
