St. Johns Insurance Agency Helps Protect Clients on the Road with FL Car Insurance and Car Seat Safety Awareness
New parents tend to be extra careful when driving with their young children, but they may unwittingly put their young ones at risk if they do not pay close attention to car seat guidelines.
Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida (PRWEB) June 02, 2012
Many safe drivers always wear their seatbelt and obey the speed limit in order to avoid an accident and subsequent injuries. However, the team at St. Johns Insurance Agency knows that even with these precautions, accidents can still happen, which is why the experts recommend comprehensive FL car insurance for their clients. New parents tend to be extra careful when driving with their young children, but they may unwittingly put their young ones at risk if they do not pay close attention to car seat guidelines. The team at St. Johns Insurance Agency wants all drivers who have child passengers to consider the following:
- It is important that parents and caregivers do their research before purchasing a car seat. They should ensure that the seat they choose is fitting for the child´s age, weight and height, and that it has a high safety rating in addition to good reviews. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration provides the latest car seat recommendations for children.
- Most car seats are not properly installed, which means they may not be providing the optimal level of protection for children. The team at St. Johns Insurance Agency reminds local parents that many nearby police and fire departments are certified inspection stations, so anyone who wants to have their child restraint checked out by an expert can visit one of these locations.
While FL car insurance can protect drivers from the financial implications of an accident, safety belts and child restraints are key for minimizing and even preventing injuries. The licensed agents at St. Johns Insurance Agency know that parents can never be too safe when it comes to driving with their children in the car, which is why they encourage those with kids under the age of 13 to become educated on car seat safety.
