NHTSA wants more children transported in rear-facing car seats


WASHINGTON — U.S. auto safety regulators on Thursday proposed revising recommendations to increase the number of children age 1 or younger who are transported in rear-facing car seats.

NHTSA is proposing to recommend that all children 26.5 pounds or less are transported in rear-facing car seats rather than the existing recommendation for children 20 pounds or less.

The agency says it is “significantly safer” for young children to be rear-facing than forward-facing in a crash.
