Last year, the Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue checked 1,452 car seats and found that about 80 percent of them were installed incorrectly. “Out of 1,452 only 300 and change were right,” said Bob Wall, a public education coordinator for the Department of Fire and Rescue.
While it’s clear that people are not using their child safety seats correctly, Wall said it’s easy for them to learn how to do better. “A lot of people don’t even realize that their child safety seats are wrong.”
