Car Seats & RVs: Keeping Children Safe While Traveling
Traveling in an RV can be a great way for families to travel. Even though the RV is large (like a house on wheels), it is still very important to be sure everyone is buckled up while driving. It is equally important to be sure children are buckled up properly in car seats or booster seats.
Different states have different laws regarding seat belt and car seat use in an RV. Be sure to do some research before traveling.
Here are a few things you can do to keep everyone in the RV safe:
- All passengers should be seated and secured in a forward-facing seat, not a side or rear facing bench, to ensure safety.
- Be sure children are properly secured in a seat belt, car seat, or booster seat.
- Do not distract the driver.
- Keep all items in the RV secured so they do not become flying objects in a crash.
- If towing a car, consider having someone drive any children requiring car seats in that car instead.
It is important to remember RVs get into accidents too. The driver of the RV should ensure all passengers are properly buckled and secured at all times while the vehicle is in motion.
