Children of all ages need special care when they ride in motor vehicles. Many adults are surprised to learn that it can take up to 12 years for a child to be big enough for safety belts – close to 5 feet tall and between 80 and 100 pounds. Until children reach that size and weight, they need to use car seats or booster seats for both protection in case of a crash and comfort. Your child will take three car seat steps before reaching step four, the safety belt. Kohl's "On the Way" Child Passenger Safety Program has been in operation since 1995 and provides free inspections of car seats, shows you how to install and adjust car seats properly and evaluates older kids for safety belt fit at Child Safety Seat Inspectation Stations in permanent locations throughout the Upstate.
