Anytime you drive you take the risk of being involved in a car accident. This is a very unnerving thought for people with small children. That's why we depend on car seats to protect our precious cargo. But if car seats are not installed properly, they don't offer the same protection, and small children can be seriously injured or killed if an accident occurs.
There is no question that school buses play an important role in transporting children throughout Placer County, California.

This was the case earlier this month in a Sacramento area community.
Last week, we wrote about the massive recall of certain Graco car seat models earlier this month. As we explained, the recall is primarily due to an allegedly defective buckle that could make it difficult to remove the child from the seat in an emergency situation.
