CAR SEATS, BOOSTERS OR SAFETY BELTS? WHICH ONE IS RIGHT FOR YOUR CHILD?
June 16, 1997
One of the most frightening events my family has experienced was on my son’s second birthday. It was a Thursday, the weather was great and the kids had finished playing in the play land at a McDonald’s. We were on our way for ice cream and within 12 miles from our house. Then … BOOM! An air bag had exploded in my face, glass was on the seat and my sons were screaming — in fear or in pain, I didn’t know which. I had been involved in fender-benders years before, but never anything like this. Our 1996 Ford Taurus was totaled. A Ford F350 truck had failed to yield the right of way and started to cross the four-lane highway we were traveling on at the 60 mph speed limit. Our car skidded 102 feet as my husband slammed on the breaks until our vehicles met at a speed of 40 mph.
