Government proposing new regulations for car safety seats

By Jennifer Gordy, KFDM News

The government is proposing new regulations for car safety seats to protect children from death and injury.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is calling for a new crash test that will simulate a side impact collision. The goal is to provide information needed to improve standards. 

Typically, crash tests simulate a frontal impact. The proposed side impact simulation will be the first of its kind.  

The government believes the outcome of this test and new regulations will help prevent about five deaths and 64 injuries a year to children.
A Beaumont police officer who is an expert on child seats and their safety welcomes the news.

The public will have 90 days to comment on the proposed regulations after they're published. 

Once approved car seat manufacturers will have three years to meet the new requirements.
