You Will Not Let Kids Wear Winter Clothes In Car When You See This

We all want our children to be safe. More than that, we want everyone to be away from harm. Whether they are in our homes or inside our cars, we always aim to be protective and accommodating. But what if being accommodating can mean that you might hurt your child more?

Because the dummy child was wearing big, stuffy clothes that leave a wide space between the child and the actual seat belt, the sudden force of the crash makes the clothes compress and effectively negates the function of the seat belt.

Just Use The Heater

One alternative solution to keep your children warm in the car during the winter is to use the car's heater. As simple as that.
