Children’s vehicular safety is a priority for all parents. However, parents often do not think about the dangers of children around vehicles. Each year, about 50 children are injured as a result of drive way run-over accidents. The injuries from these accidents range, with some minor and others leaving lasting effects, and a few fetal. Even accidents at slow speeds can leave devastating, or possibly fatal, injuries. These accidents can also happen in other areas where cars are prevalent, such as parking lots. It is important that parents be diligent to protect their little ones around vehicles, as most of these accidents can be prevented with a few simple changes to routine.

In the United States, the culture is rapid and everyone is in a hurry. Many accidents happen simply because drivers were not as prudent as they should be. Thus, make it a habit to take a few seconds to walk around your vehicle before getting into it and driving, especially if you live or work in a neighborhood with many children. Many vehicles come equipped with technology such as back up cameras, but drivers should still physically look. This step only takes a few seconds but can save a child’s life one day.

Parents should also designate an area for children play or wait. This area should be visible to all drivers and out of dangerous spots, such as driveways and parking lots. In addition, put your little ones into the car first when you are in a parking lot unloading groceries or shopping bags. Finally, when walking around vehicles, walk next to your child and your child’s hand. Be vigilant about this when walking in parking lots, sidewalks, or streets.

Vehicle safety is fundamental for parents. When your little ones are inside the vehicle, consider colored seat belts to make it easier to see if they are buckled. Safety Restore offers colored seatbelts in a variety of colors, including red, yellow, orange, green, and pink. A very popular option is our BMW competition seat belts

Children are our most precious cargo in vehicles. However, in the United States, injuries from vehicular accidents are the primary cause of preventable fatalities and injuries for children ages 1-13. Expects indicate that using the correct car seat can mitigate this risk by up to 71%. Yet statistics show that 75% of car seats are not either not properly installed or not used altogether. Whether you are a new parent or one with a carload of little ones already, ensure that you have the correct car seat and it is installed properly.

First, make sure that your child has the correct seat. To find the correct seat for your child based on his or her age, look on the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) site. There is a listing or seat requirements defined by age brackets. Experts recommend that until the age of two, children should be strapped into a rear-facing car seat. Children typically outgrow infant car seats at about 8-9 months. Experts recommend getting an all-in-one convertible car seat at this point. This allows the child to continue to be rear-facing, which is safer for him or her, and then move to forward-facing.

At around 1-3 years old, the child can be placed into a forward facing set. From 4-7 years of age, the child will need a booster seat. Many drivers ignore booster seats, however, without a booster, a child’s seat belt will not fit properly. There are different types of booster seats. A booster seat with a high back provides head and neck support in the event of an accident, while a backless booster seat does not. Depending on your child’s size, a booster seat may have to be used until he or she is age 12. After 12, children can start using seat belts. To maximize safety, do not allow a child younger than 12 to sit in the front seat. Whatever type of car seat your child has, be sure to register it with the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration to be alerted of any safety recalls to the seat.

Safety Restore understands that safety is essential. Thus, Safety Restore provides custom color seat belts. While children over the age of 12 can be buckled by seat belts, they don’t often keep them on. Custom color seatbelts can promote the safety of seat belts by making it easy for a parent to see if a child has unbuckled him or herself. Safety Restore offers custom colored seat belts in bright hues, like red, orange, yellow, and green. Safety Restore only uses OEM webbing fabric that meets, or often exceeds, federal guidelines for custom color seat belts. Not only will your custom seat belt webbing look great, but they will keep your little one safe. Colored seat belts can also upgrade the look of the interior of a vehicle.

Your vehicle says a lot about the person you are. You can infer something about someone who, for example, drives a Jeep Wrangler as opposed to someone who drives a Chrysler mini-van. It is true that for some a vehicle will always remain a way to get from “Point A to Point B,” but this is not the average driver. Most passionate drivers want a car that reflects personality and has vitality. There are a few simple ways to customize your vehicle without breaking the bank.

A few places to begin with your customization is in the interior of your vehicle. You may want to consider custom floor mats, which can depict images of camouflage or other fun patterns. Not only will these mats add personality, but they can protect the floors of your vehicle. Next, you may contemplate adding a steering wheel cover. Like the custom mats, steering wheel covers serve a practical purpose. For example, sheepskin wheel covers can help to protect your hands from the cold in the winter time. Custom sun visors are another way to add a character to your vehicle. You can do something fun, like pink or camo, to brighten the interior of your vehicle. Custom seat covers are another way to add your persona to your vehicle. Again, these can also serve a practical purpose by protecting cloth or leather seats. Finally, adding custom seat belt webbing can improve the look and feel of the interior of your vehicle.

Safety Restore offers custom seat belt webbing compatible with any make or model. With colors like pink, purple, blue, green, red, yellow and orange, and even BMW Competition seat belt webbing for those looking for an amazing seat belt swap.

Does Your Deployed SRS Airbag Module Need to be Reset after an Accident?

Example of an srs airbag module that was reset after it was deployed during an accident.

Believe it or not, winter is right around the corner. If you are from a part of the country that experiences a harsh winter, you know that this dangerous time can wear out your vehicle. From heavy snow fall to black ice to below zero temperatures, roads in the winter season are riddled with danger. Each year, thousands of drivers end up stranded due to hazardous roads or malfunctioning vehicles, anywhere from short periods of time, to even days. Aside from the typical dangers of being on the road, there is also an increasing danger of hypothermia. Most drivers are not adequately prepared to be stranded, but you can take measures to ensure safety in the event you are stranded in your vehicle during a storm.

First, you should try to keep your vehicle fueled as much as possible in the winter time, especially when taking a long trip. In the event you are stranded, that gas in your tank might be all you have to keep warm for hours, if not days. You can also create a winter emergency kit to leave in your vehicle. Aside from the usual first aid kit, you should include emergency flares, flashlights, a radio, extra batteries, and ice scraper and a bag of sand to help with traction. You will also need to pack items to keep you warm if you are stranded for a length period of time, including: warm blankets, extra gloves, a ski mask to protect your face, extra warm clothing and boots. Make sure the clothing you choose is made of materials that insulate well, such as fleece. Finally, if you have an old cell phone that you no longer use, charge it and keep it in your car. Even if the phone is not connected to any provider, you will still be able to call 911 on it. Alternatively, you can keep a fully charged battery pack and charging cable for your phone.

Part of preparing for the winter season is ensuring your car is safe to drive. If your SRS airbag module has deployed, you likely need to have it repaired or replaced before the winter season. When the airbag module deploys, it became useless and now prevents airbags from deploying in an accident. Thus, there is a great risk to driving a vehicle with the SRS airbag module deployed. Whether you have been in a car accident or purchased a car from an auction, the airbag module should be repaired as soon as possible. While many manufactures and repair shops will suggest you replace the deployed SRS airbag module, Safety Restore repair it for a fraction of the cost, saving you upwards of $1,000! Do not risk driving in the winter season with a SRS airbag module deployed – contact Safety Restore today and get it taken care of before the first snow fall!

Vehicle Flooding and Airbag Module Reset

Airbag Module Reset
Safety Restore’s Airbag Module Reset Service

We have all likely driven through water deeper than six inches – whether this was in a storm, or flooding, or off-roading. However, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, just six inches of water can hinder steering, making it difficult for a driver to control his or her vehicle. At 12 inches, a car can already begin to steadily to float away. Finally, any water above 24 inches leads to water seeping into a vehicle, particularly smaller sedans and lower cars. Driving through storms that involve heavy rainfall and flooding is becoming increasingly common due to extreme weather conditions and increased travel. Despite warnings, few people are prepared for vehicular flooding.

There are several steps to take to ensure safety before flooding occurs. First, unless the flooding occurs unexpectedly, there should be warnings on the radio or news about it. Stations such as the Emergency Alert System (EAS), or the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Weather Radio or local warning systems can keep you informed of flooding in your area. Take heed of these warnings: do not travel through flooded areas or drive around barricades. Next, do not underestimate the power and danger of flooding, no matter how shallow the flooding is. Remember – just six inches of flooding can make steering more difficult and can lead to losing control of the vehicle. Turn around if you can and seek higher ground if you are able to. Stay away from bridges or other areas near fast-moving water. Vehicles can be easily washed away by unexpected, rapidly moving flood waters off bridges.

At Safety Restore, we understand that extreme weather and storms can happen unexpectedly. Though it is hard to stay safe, you can avoid danger by following the steps outlined above. Moreover, ensure your vehicle is properly maintained. If you airbag has deployed or your airbag light is on, you may need to have your airbag module reset. After an impact, even a minor one, airbag modules may become useless, requiring airbag module resets. In this process, the airbag computer reset is completed by using an OEM factory installed program. Airbag SRS module reset is a great alternative to airbag module replacement, which can cost upwards of $1,000.00. At Safety Restore, we offer 24-hour turnaround period, so your module will be on its way back to you as quickly as possible. Do not risk waiting for an emergency situation, such as flooding – contact Safety Restore about airbag module reset today.

Vehicle Winterizing & Seatbelt Retractor Repair

Seatbelt Retractor Repair
Safety Restore’s seat belt retractor repair is the best in the industry.

With winter season approaching, drivers need to begin thinking about winterizing their vehicles to deal with the onslaught of cold temperatures, black ice and, of course, snow! The winter is especially hard on vehicles, but by winterizing you vehicle, you can limit potential damage to your car and ensure your safety and the safety of your passengers. Follow these six steps to winterize your vehicle.

Check your battery: cold weather is brutal on a vehicle’s battery. Make sure your battery does not need to be replaced. You can have a mechanic check your battery. Even if your battery does not need to be replaced, a mechanic and clean up any corrosion on the connections and posts of it.

Maintain your windshield wipers and wiper fluid: Make sure you have plenty of wiper fluid and that your windshield wipers do not need to be replaced. You can also find windshield wiper fluid that has a lower freezing temperature. Malfunctioning or frayed windshield wipers should be replaced as soon as possible.

Get snow tires: if the roads you drive daily are snow covered on an on-going basis, you may consider getting snow tires, which provide more traction. With softer rubber than your typical all-season tires, these tires maintain flexibility in colder temperatures. They also have grooved patterns that can grip snow and ice. Whether you drive on all-season tires or snow tires, you should ensure proper tire pressure. Air pressure in tires drops in cold weather. Generally, 1psi is lost for every 10 degree drop in temperature.

Check your anti-freeze: make sure your anti-freeze and water mixture is at about 50:50 in order to hinder any coolant from freezing in your radiator. Auto stores typically carry inexpensive anti-freeze testers, which you can use to test the mixture yourself.

Use a thinner oil: you may consider switching to a thinner oil. Oil is used as a lubricant in your engine. During the winter season, cold temperatures result in thicker oil, which impacts lubrication ability. By switching to a thinner oil, you can keep the effectiveness of the oil.

Maintain your vehicle’s safety: if you need maintenance on your car, including seat belt retractor repair, be sure to do it before the winter time. Maintaining safety is always important, but especially so when driving on slick roads in the winter season. If your seat belt is not retracting the way it used to, you may need seat belt retractor repair. Luckily, Safety Restore offers seat belt retractor repair that is fast, easy, and affordable. Simply detach your seat belts and mail them to Safety Restore. Safety Restore will take care of your seat belt retractor repair within 24 hours of receiving them. Not only will your seat belt retractor repair improve the look of your car, but you will be safe for the upcoming winter months.

Was your SRS Airbag Module Deployed?

Has your SRS airbag module been deployed? Safety Restore can have it reset!

Airbags on a car are an important safety tool like seat belts. With over six million car accidents a year in the United States, you have likely already seen or experienced an airbag being deployed. The process begins when the collision sensor sends data to the airbag module, and the airbag deploys and fills with a gas. This process takes place in only seconds, protecting whoever is sitting by the airbag.

Airbags have been around in some form for over 50 years. Patents for basic airbags can be found as early as the 1950s; however, these systems lacked the crucial sensor component. There were also failures in design, such as trying to use compressed air for airbags, which did not inflate fast enough. In 1968, Allen Breed invented and patented a safety sensor system that would lead to the technology necessary to deploy airbags. This system was the world’s first electromechanical airbag system for vehicles.

Ford car company manufactured vehicles with airbags in 1971 experimentally, and General Motors followed suit. In 1973, the first the Oldsmobile Toronado became the first vehicle with airbags manufactured for the general public. In 1974, car manufacturers were required to provide either seat belts or airbags in vehicles, despite lobbying against the requirement by both Ford and GM. However, by the 1980s, most car manufactures not only accepted that airbags were necessary, but sought to improve safety on vehicles. In 1981, for example, Mercedes-Benz created a pretension seat belt that would lock and hold the passenger at impact before deploying the airbag.  This was an integration of airbags and seat belts as a system instead of two separate parts, which has become standard on all vehicles.

Today, vehicle safety is continuing to improve.  Most cars now have a collision sensor, which sends a signal to the airbag module causing the airbag to deploy. After the SRS airbag module deployed, the airbag module will need to be replaced to reset. If your SRS air bag module deployed, Safety Restore can help by resetting it. When theSRS module deploys, crash data and hard codes get stored which renders it useless. Using only OEM technology, Safety Restore can erase these hard codes restore any airbag module that has been deployed.   Safety Restore’s process of SRS airbag module resetting can save you upwards of $1,000.00. If your SRS airbag module deployed, do not delay resetting it any longer – it could save your life!
