Safe Kids car-seat clinics: Minor adjustments can make major differences

Sarah McIntosh, of Kansas City, North, buckles Ethan McIntosh, 13 months, into his car seat as they sat in their driveway, May 26, 2011, in Kansas City, Missouri. Sarah uses a stuffed doge with a "Got Ethan?" tag sitting in the front seat to remind her that Ethan is in the car with her. Since people started saving babies from airbags in the 90s by putting them in back seat car seats facing backwards, the number of babies forgotten in cars and left to die of heat strokes has skyrocketed.

Safe Kids Anoka County and others offer free inspections to try to ensure children's seats are properly installed.
