As you all know, Tums 2 Tots has taken a huge stand for children’s safety in cars. We host the #CarseatFullstop campaign right here on our site. We are passionate about spreading awareness about the critical importance of keeping our little one’s safe on the roads. The ONLY way they are safe is in a car child safety seat that is age appropriate and installed properly. You also know that we partnered up with the incomparable Volvo Car South Africa team. And that they are known everywhere as building the safest cars in the world.
What many of you won’t know, is that Volvo has been instrumental in the development and testing of child safety seats since the 1960s. The first car child safety seat was inspired by astronauts’ seats. They were rearward facing to distribute the forces of a collision over the larger surface area of the back and head. This protects the child’s vulnerable neck. Prof Bertil Aldman at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg developed the seat. Volvo was closely involved in project and the prototype was crash tested in a Volvo PV444 in 1964.
For more than 50 years, Volvo has worked closely with leading car seat developers in the design and crash testing of child safety seats. The result of years of intensive research and innovation is the current new generation Volvo child safety seats.
