Houston, TX, April 10, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Head injury in vehicular crashes is the leading cause of death for children ages 0 to 12 years. Children who ride in car seats today, engineered for safety using modern technology, are four times less likely to suffer injury of the head and brain during a crash than those just wearing a seat belt.

Ideally the child should be placed in crash tested and approved infant seats, car seats or booster seat until they are mature enough to safely use the lap seat belts provided in most vehicles today. Seat belts are not enough for young children. Infants up to one year old should ride in an infant capable car seat facing the rear of the vehicle. Toddlers and youngsters (up to the age of 4) can ride the car seat facing forward. All should ride in an approved car seat and the child should be strapped in securely using a five point harness system, not just a seat belt, whenever the vehicle is in motion.
The award winning Britax Marathon 70 car seat is equipped with proprietary technology designed to minimize injury to a child regardless of from which direction the crash occurs. It provides literally 360 degree protection, during a vehicle crash, with particular emphasis given to the protection of the child’s head.
