I found this video on what a new minivan looks like inside after a crash -
complete with ruptured airbags in multiple places - super interesting.
Also think about crumple zones and imagine how much of the force of this crash was absorbed by this amazing technology.
This Ohio family was traveling out of state when a semi driver failed to slow down for construction traffic. Now two of their children are dead and the 3rd remains hospitalized along with their mother. A tragic, horrific loss for everyone involved.

Wow! Buckle up, Detroit!
BUCKLE UP OFFICERS!
This Missouri Highway Patrol video shows what was occurring in front of the cruiser as well as inside the cruiser. You can WATCH the seat be...lt do its job and protect the trooper.
I can't tell you how many times an officer has told me that he or she doesn't want to wear a seat belt because an emergency may require a quick exit... or it interferes with a gun or gun belt... or it can make an officer a sitting duck... or emergency personnel are exempt for a reason. The fact remains that traffic injuries caused more officer deaths in 2015 than any other cause, including firearms (preliminary data), Even in rare years when the top cause of death is something else, traffic injuries are way up there and often preventable.
Share the video with officers you care about. I am!
Always keep your doors locked, even if your vehicle is in your garage or driveway! This is such a heartbreaking loss. 😢
Road trip season is here! Please watch this video to learn why you should never, ever put your feet on the dash OR over-recline your seat in an attempt to get comfortable.
I present to you: just ONE reason why 4 year olds are not built for booster seats.
Remember, if they can't stay seated at the dinner table, they can't be trusted to do so in the car. Keep your child harnessed until they are mature enough to sit still - and make sure they meet the minimum weight/height requirements!
The Bubblebum inflatable booster: because sometimes you need a super narrow option or something lightweight for travel. You can see the Bubblebum provides a great belt fit on my petite 9 year old.
1) Her belly is protected because the belt guides position the lap belt in the correct area - off of her abdomen and at the tops of her thighs instead.
2) The shoulder belt isn't rubbing against her neck thanks to the shoulder belt guide.
3) She said, "This feels comfy on my tushy!"...
