Hey Parents: Slow Down and Come Learn How to Care for Your Precious Cargo!
I understand that life can get busy and we are always in a rush to get somewhere or get something done. However, protecting our family must be our utmost priority that requires we slow down, take our time and make sure our babies’ car seats are properly installed. September is Child Passenger Safety Week and Britax, an industry leader in safety and quality, wants to make sure we take the time to ensure our precious cargo, our children, are safely riding in the car.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, every 33 seconds a child under the age of 13 is involved in a crash. Of those children ages 8 and under who died in a vehicle crash in 2014, 26% were not restrained by an age-appropriate device such as an infant seat, booster seat or seat belt.
WOAW! These statistics are alarming!
To think that the death of a child could have been prevented by simply using and correctly installing the appropriate gear is troubling. NO child has control over where he is buckled-up, it is up to parents to slow down, take the time to check each car seat and that way protect their family.
Our friends at Britax are also inviting us to learn from a safety technician specialist to discuss and demonstrate proper car seat installation and check out the Endeavours Infant Car Seat. Bring your significant other or fly solo but we’ll be there waiting for you:

Britax Invites Parents to #TestDriveParenthood in Collaboration with Lexus
In Honor of Child Passenger Safety Week, Britax and Lexus to Host Car Seat Installation Demonstrations for Expecting and New Parents at Dealerships in Seven Cities Across the Country
Parents and caregivers want to know that they’re doing everything they can to protect their family, especially on the road. This September, Britax Child Safety, Inc., the leader in child passenger safety technology and U.S. manufacturer of premium car seats, is excited to announce that they are joining Lexus to host events at dealerships in seven cities across the country during Child Passenger Safety Week (September 17-23, 2017). The goal of these events is to educate parents and caregivers on infant car seat safety and show support as they enter a new stage of life with a newborn.
The #TestDriveParenthood program is intended for growing families who are making several new
purchases as they prepare to bring baby home, which include a reliable infant car seat and a family-
friendly vehicle. Offering parents a combination of premium quality, safety and style, Britax and Lexus
want to provide new families peace of mind that their children are protected on the road. Brand
representatives will be on hand at the select dealerships to walk attendees and media through proper car
seat installations, discuss key car seat and vehicle features and provide helpful child passenger safety tips.
“Britax understands the immense pressure placed on new parents today as they try to navigate what can
seem like an overwhelming amount of baby safety information. By hosting these events with Lexus,
another brand known for safety and innovation, we hope to educate new parents in a way that is
convenient and supportive to them,” said Kelly Thomas, Britax brand manager “Recent studies have
found that three out of four children ride in car seats that are either installed or used incorrectly. Britax
and Lexus aim to arm parents and caregivers with the knowledge they need to make sure their children
are secured correctly in the right car seats for their stage and that the car seats are installed correctly in an appropriate vehicle.”

“These events align with our Lexus Difference program, an initiative in which our dealerships strive to
build stronger connections and provide meaningful engagement opportunities in their local communities
to grow appeal with women and millennials,” said Peggy Turner, Vice President of Lexus Retention and
Customer Services. “We want to speak directly to new parents and go the extra mile to provide them
support as they expand their families. We hope that they feel that Lexus dealerships are a place they can
go not just to purchase a new vehicle, but somewhere they can feel comfortable and supported as they
move through different stages of life.”
