Car seat latch system makes shopping carts safer
Improper use of a shopping cart is to blame for nearly 24,000 kids visiting the ER across the country each year. This surpasses injuries from high chairs, strollers, changing tables and other equipment.
A handful of Boise area stores such as Walmart, Trader Joe’s, Albertsons and Paul’s Market have outfitted some of their shopping carts with the Safe-Dock system for infants. The specially-designed carts keep infant car carriers securely in place. This directly addresses a dangerous trend of parents balancing infant carriers and car seats on top of shopping carts – which too often, tip-over and lead to head injuries.
Dennis McCoy and Donna Porritt demonstrated how the Safe-Dock system works on Good Morning Idaho.
