The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) Office of Defects Investigation has recalled 1.2 million child seats made by the Dorel Juvenile Group because of the serious injury risk they could pose to children involved in an auto accident. The child harnesses in question were made from November 2003 to December 2005. The NHTSA says the harness strap may become loose and so a child’s risk of injury would increase in a car crash because the youth would not be securely restrained. This is troubling to parents who believe they are doing what they can to keep their children safe. The parents may not have the proper insurance because of the belief that a child safety seat would protect their little ones. This goes to show despite a parent’s best efforts and belief that they have done everything to protect their kids during a vehicle collision, it is important to have the proper insurance coverage.
