Think about how much time you spend in your vehicle on a daily basis. Now consider all the time your friends and family spend in your car. All that time amounts to mess: smudges on the windows, scratches throughout, dirt on the ground, dust, and perhaps even spilled drinks and food. No matter what size your vehicle is, it is still small enough to amass mess quickly. Keeping your car clean is easier than you think by adding a few simple habits.

First, try to prevent the mess before it occurs. Avoid messy activities, like eating in your vehicle and make sure to use travel mugs that do not spill. Avoid clutter by emptying your car of things on a daily basis. If you need to have a car full of things, you may consider a car hook or a hanging organizer for the back of your seat to organize everything into. Adding a plastic bag in your car for trash can also be a lifesaver and keep trash off the floor or seats. These simple changes can preserve the upholstery, rugs and the general interior of your vehicle.

Next, adding simple cleaning rituals can keep your car always looking new. For this, you can keep microfiber cloths in your car with a cleaner to wipe down your dash, leather, and anything else that accumulates dirt or dust. By keeping these supplies in your car, you can fit in a few minutes to wipe down your car when you are waiting in the drive-thru, in the pick-up line at school or just sitting in traffic. This will ensure that dust and debris never gets out of hand. Microfiber cloths are also incredibly handy in the unfortunate event of a spill.

Furthermore, you may also consider a few affordable upgrades to your car to increase your vehicle’s interior. Waterproof mats can protect your mats and floor from dirt, spills, and debris. Similarly, seat covers can preserve your upholstery or leather. However, these upgrades are optional and it is possible to keep your car in good condition by following the steps outlined above.

We have all seen the stories in the news: another parent unintentionally leaves his or her child in a vehicle on hot day, and tragically, the child dies. The technical term is Vehicular Heatstroke, or broadly, hyperthermia. Most parents do not think this will happen to them, and usually the parents who this happened to are the first to profess this. However, on average, 37 children die each year due to vehicular heatstroke. Of the children who die, 87% are three years old or younger. Children under the age of one make up 55% of all vehicular heatstroke deaths. Over three-fourths of all vehicular heatstroke deaths happen in southern states; however, experts all agree that this can happen anywhere.

Children are especially susceptible for Vehicular Heatstroke. First, children’s temperatures rise at a rate 3-5 times faster than temperatures of adults. This fact, coupled with the fact that temperatures can rise as quickly as 20 degrees in just ten minutes, creates danger to children. Moreover, Vehicular Heatstroke can happen in cooler temperatures, with experts warning that it can occur even if outside temperatures are 57 degrees.

Parents can be diligent about ensuring they do not allow this to happen to their child. Parents should be extra cautious with any changes in routine. Placing a child’s toy in the front seat can also serve as a reminder, or placing an item you need (like a cellphone, purse, briefcase) in the backseat can make parents check their back seat before going off to work. Finally, a simple habit of looking before locking car doors can save children’s lives.

About 19 states currently employ a Good Samaritan Law that protect individuals who reasonably intervene when they see a child alone in a vehicle. These states include Vermont, Florida, Virginia, South Carolina, Alabama, Kentucky, Texas, Arizona and Oregon. However, even if your state does not have a Good Samaritan Law on the books (states including Massachusetts and Connecticut and California), people can always contact law enforcement and notify them of the child in the vehicle.

Car safety is vital in all aspects. Aside from taking the steps outlined above, parents should also ensure their seat belt buckles are not in need of repairs.

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.

Do You Not Wear Your Seat Belt Because You Need Seat Belt Buckle Repair?

While most people wear seat belts, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that one in seven people still do not wear seat belts. Other sources estimate that number to be closer to one in five people, of 20% vehicle occupiers. Therefore, many still risk injury or death when not wearing a seat belt.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that seatbelts prevent death in over 15,000 people yearly. This is because seat belts offer five-way protection.

First, seat belts keep drivers and passengers within the vehicle during time of impact. Those who are thrown from a vehicle at the time of impact are over four times more likely to die as compared to those buckled inside the vehicle as the result of the accident.  Second, the modern three-point seat belt restrains the strongest point of the body: the hips and shoulders. This area is where most vital organs are located. By compacting this area, seat belts help to minimize damage from impact. Third, three-point seat belts help to disperse force from impact among a broad range of the body. The shoulder strap, for example, minimizes impact by halting the head and shoulders from jerking forward and hitting hard objects, such as the steering wheel or dashboard.  Fourth, seat belts hinder a jerking change in speed, slowing the body of the driver or passenger down. This time is vital for preventing injuries. Fifth, seat belts protect the brain and the spinal cord during time of impact. An injury to the spinal cord, like an injury to the head, can have devastating and sometimes deadly consequences. The shoulder-strap specifically helps prevent this type of damage during impact.

Often, people do not wear their seat belts because there is an issue with the or they are locked. If your seat belt buckle is faulty or locked, seat belt buckle repair may make the difference between life and death in a collision.  Safety Restore offers seat belt buckle repair services that is affordable and easy to complete.  Specifically, since 1996, retractors and pretensioner’s help to heighten the function of airbags by reducing one’s impact with the airbag during collision. Seat belt buckles often lock after an accident, but seat belt buckle repair by Safety Restore can alleviate this issue. With 24-hour turnaround time and a satisfaction guarantee, seatbelt buckle repair is necessary and there is no excuse for putting it off any longer.
