This mum just reminded people how important baby car seats are

A mother’s post on road safety has gone viral online. The post featured her intact baby car seats that had just saved her children from a terrifying car accident.

Jenna Casado Rabberman shared the photo after a car slammed into hers as she alighted to pick some milk.

The mother of two had left her three year-old and six weeks-old children safely strapped onto their car seats.

“THIS is why you buckle your kids into their car seats correctly every SINGLE time. Even when they scream because the straps are tight. Even when they complain about the chest clip or being rear facing. We stopped for milk on the way home from preschool yesterday. We were minutes from home. Another car slammed into us. You never think it will happen to you.

“My boys escaped without a scratch but the paramedics told me it could have been very different had I not taken the extra 2 minutes to be sure they were buckled correctly. I will be fine, my kids are fine, everything else can be replaced. Sending thanks to God for keeping us safe (along with Honda, Graco & Chicco),” wrote the mother.

Her post has been shared across the world by over 250,000 users emphasizing the need for children’s car seats.

Many Kenyans are in the habit of allowing children to seat on the co-driver’s sit while driving for short distances.
