Most of the time, we field questions from caregivers who have children in their care during in-person car seat and booster seat checks or via our Facebook Group. That proximity to the child helps us gather enough information to help those caregivers select the right car seat for their situation. But during busy travel and
The RideSafer Delight Travel Vest is an updated version of the Ride Safer Travel Vest, which came in two versions: the RideSafer Travel Vest 2, and the RideSafer Travel Vest 3, or RSTV 2 and 3.

The 12 passenger van is in some ways, the scourge of the Child Passenger Safety world. These vans often lack head restraints, are often used to improperly transport young children, and are home to a host of creative safety practices due to their age or their occupation.
