What’s the difference between a car seat and IKEA furniture?

Traffic Safety Pulse News

While assembly and use can be tricky for both IKEA furniture and car seats, only a car seat keeps kids from being ejected from a vehicle in a crash. If you beat us to the correct answer, then we need your help. Colorado is facing a shortage of certified Child Passenger Safety (CPS) Technicians. CPS Technicians are trained in the finer points of car seat use, fit and installation… which can be more complicated than you think. They also staff car seat check locations across the state (read: fire stations, police stations and hospitals), and are needed for community car seat check events open to the public.

Certification courses are scheduled statewide and throughout the year — and only take a few days to complete. Email Colorado State Patrol Trooper Tim Sutherland at [email protected] or visit CarSeatsColorado.com to learn more.
