WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says a lot of parents have trouble installing their child safety seats.
The agency says vehicle seat designs are to blame. It says the belt buckles and other seat hardware can block the child restraint anchors. As a part of its study, the agency found only 21 of 98 popular vehicles have attachment hardware that make it easier to correctly install restraints.
