News Summary: New regs sought for child car seats

NEW TEST: Child car seats would for the first time have to protect children in side-impact crashes under regulations the government is proposing, The Associated Press has learned.

THE BENEFIT: The agency estimates the standards will prevent the deaths of about five children and injuries to 64 others each year.

SIDE CRASH: The new tests would simulate a "T-bone" crash, where the front of a vehicle strikes the side of another. The tests will position the car seat on a sled, with another sled ramming the side of the sled with the seat, rather than using actual vehicles.
