WARNING - Children on Lap WARNING - Children on Lap

Never hold a child on your lap or in your arms in a moving vehicle. Even a very strong person cannot hold onto a child in the event of even a minor collision.

Many companies manufacture child-restraint systems (often called child seats) for infants and small children. An acceptable child-restraint system must always satisfy U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. Make sure that any child-restraint system you use in your vehicle is labeled as complying with those safety standards.

The child restraint system should be chosen to fit both the size of the child and the size of the vehicle seat. Be sure to follow any instructions provided by the child restraint system manufacturer when installing the child-restraint system.
