10 Places to Find a Certified Car Seat Tech in Houston

10placescarseathelphoustonData released by the United States National Highway Traffic Administration shows that, even with the increase in seatbelt law stringency and regulations regarding child safety seats in automobiles, traffic accidents are still the leading cause of death for children between the ages of three and fourteen years old. The best weapon in a parent’s arsenal against injury or death in the event of a car crash is a high-quality car seat that’s been properly installed, but some models can be confusing and it’s not always easy to know whether or not a car seat is installed the right way. Thankfully, there are a variety of options available for parents in the Houston area in need of advice or assistance when it comes to maintaining and installing car seats. If you’re looking for a certified car seat technician in the Houston area, these ten resources may be the answer. (updated 10/28/14)
