A certified instructor at SafetyBeltSafe U.S.A. offered to help me with our two car seats. They took the time to explain and teach me how to install the seats and how to keep my children safer in the car.

A few months later, both children were in my Expedition. As we exited a parking lot, we were slammed on the right side where my one-year-old sat. He was not making any noise! I panicked. His side of the car was crushed. Finally, my little one started screaming.

Ignoring my pain, I climbed into the back seat and was able to see them. Emergency vehicles arrived and I was put in an ambulance (turns out I had a concussion, two spinal fractures, and two herniated discs in my back).A firefighter told me that both my children were fine and that what saved them was how well their car seats were installed and how well they fit into them. I am forever grateful to SafetyBeltSafe U.S.A. for saving my children’s lives that day, it would have been a lot worse had it not been for their car seats being installed properly.
