How to choose the best child car seat for this summer

Disconnect from the routine, relax, enjoy and, if possible, make a getaway. The summer is for many a good time to take the car and hit the road in search of adventure and disconnection. However, safety is paramount, especially in these times where traffic is heavier and the heat can play a trick on us. 
Safety devices such as the belt or the airbag are essential to avoid or reduce serious or fatal injuries in the event of an accident. However, we must not forget that if we travel with children they can be especially vulnerable in the event of an accident and that is why it is so important to choose the right child restraint system (CRS) and know how to place it. The Spanish Alliance for Child Safety (AESVI), together with the General Directorate of Traffic, have prepared the Decalogue of Child Road Safety with the ten golden rules that we must take into account before starting our trip.

The SRI is essential

Spanish legislation requires that minors with a height equal to or less than 135 cm always use a restraint system adapted to their weight and height . Likewise, the Decalogue points out the importance of never leaving a child alone in the car , without being supervised by an adult, and more especially at this time of year where heat is an added risk.

2. Where to buy the SRI

It is advisable that you buy this device in specialized establishments , where you can ask everything you need and they will advise you on which is the most appropriate for your case.

3. Never second hand

As it is a security device, it is best not to risk it. You never know what you can find, so it is advisable not to use second-hand seats. In addition, after an accident , it is essential to change the SRI .

4. Homologation

Before buying the seat, check if it is approved and if the label includes the weight and size for which it was designed.

5. Anchoring system

Before buying it, it is important that you examine the anchoring system of your vehicle and check if the chosen CRS fits correctly.
