Make rear-facing until 2 years the law!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Rear-facing, convertible, & 3-in-1 are designed to distribute the crash forces across the shell of the car seat. Toddlers in the second year of life are five times less likely to die or be seriously injured in a crash if they are rear-facing in the vehicle. Babies that are under 2 years, are not strong enough to withstand strong crash forces without the extra protection that a rear-facing car seat provides.  Turning a child under age 2 to a forward-facing position can result in head, neck or spinal cord injuries or even death in the event of a crash. Too many parents are forward facing their infants too soon, usually when they outgrow their bucket seat. Car seat research has shown that children 23 months old and under are up to 75 percent less likely to die or sustain serious injury in a rear-facing car seat than a forward-facing one. Please help me change the law to ensure the safety of our children!
