The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is part of the Department of Transportation of the United States. The agency’s mission is to prevent injuries and save lives by reducing vehicle-related crashes.

One of the things that NHTSA does is to write the standards for safety in vehicles, including air bags, safety restraints, and child restraints. The agency examines air bags for safe deployment, writes safety guidelines for manufacturers, and helps the public understand safety features. The NHTSA web site even has interactive videos that allow parents to decide which child restraints are appropriate for their child’s age.
