Car Safety Reminder

Car Safety Reminder
One of the oldest and most often overlooked features of your vehicle's safety system is the headrest.

If you are involved in a rear end collision, the headrest provides the support necessary to help prevent serious neck injuries. Conversely, if the headrest is not in the proper location for the vehicle's occupants, serious injury can result.

The middle of the headrest should align with the top of your ears and be 2 - 4 inches behind your head.

If you share vehicles or are in someone else's car, always move the headrest to best suit you. Check that your passenger's headrests are in the proper location for them, and don't forget about those in the backseat.

Please share this important tip with young or inexperienced drivers. This simple safety precaution can go a long way to preventing unnecessary injury to you or your loved ones.
