PORTSMOUTH- Tom Leach of the Injury Prevention Office at Dartmouth spent Thursday inspecting car seats at a free event. According to him many parents have a hard time keeping up with the changing technology.
"I don't think people really appreciate how sophisticated the equipment is because it's really come a long ways," said Leach. " A lot of technology from the racing industry, from safety initiatives technology is built into the seats."
Mother of five children Jenna Feist admits it is a struggle.
"There's definitely learning mistakes I made with my older two," said Feist. "I definitely would not put my younger three in the car seats that I had my older two in when they were their age."
According to Leach there is one issue he sees often.
"What people don't realize is that as their children get older they tend to be in a hurry to move them to the next level seat, and by doing that they're actually moving the child to a seat that provides less safety," said Leach.
A move that could spell trouble on the road.
