James Ceranti Nissan Celebrates Ten Years of Saving Lives with Nissan Snug Kids

Snug KidsToday marks the first day of Child Passenger Safety Week, and Nissan is celebrating with its ten year anniversary of the Snug Kids program, which began back in 2002. Snug Kids was the very first program in the automotive industry dedicated to providing the most detailed safety information for child safety seats.

As part of the program, Nissan researches in-depth the very best car seats or booster seats that fit compatibly and most safely in all Nissan and Infiniti vehicles. The research also informs parents and guardians of how to properly install both forward-facing and rear-facing safety seats.

Why is this such a big deal for Nissan? Simple: automobile accidents are the leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 12. The proper use of a child-restraint system can reduce these adolescent fatalities by 71% in infants and 54% in toddlers. As such, knowing what safety seat to use and how to strap it in correctly is integral to protecting every child who rides in a Nissan or Infiniti.

Over the last decade, the safety engineers of Nissan have spent thousands and thousands of hours testing and evaluating child safety seats and compiling their findings in a comprehensive child safety seat fit guide for parents. As part of the Snug Kids program, Nissan will continue this dedication to the safety of the nation’s youth for decades to come.
