The affordability of car seats

All parents care about the safety of their children. But the affordability of car seats can be an issue for many people. Did you know there are organisations that help with this? Here is one of them.

IT IS POSSIBLE FOR ANYONE TO HAVE A CAR SEAT

Car seat affordability is a big factor for many families. Most people are unaware that there are organisations that can help you to obtain a very reasonably priced or even free car seat.

As this was something that has been top of mind for me, I decide to visit the Wheel Well Organisation in Randburg to learn more about the work they are doing in road safety especially in relation to children’s safety.

Wheel Well is a non-profit organisation that was established by Peggy Mars, to look at a way of providing access to car seats for needy families. The work they do is truly commendable, they take used (and new) car seats, donated by the public or corporates, and ensure they are ready & available to be used by those who need them.

CAR SEATS ARE A PRIORITY

Taking part in #CarseatFullstop has really opened my eyes about car seat safety for children. I recently wrote about what I am doing differently in order to ensure my children’s safety while in the car.

We all know why it’s important for us to use a proper age appropriate car seat for our children. It is also a legal requirement in South African for babies under 3 to be in an age-appropriate car seat. We can no longer ignore the huge amount of research, evidence and statistics.
