Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Our two year old is in a properly secured rear-facing britax toddler car seat. She is in the second row on the driver side. As we were driving our six year old alerted us to her distress. She had managed to grab the seat belt for the middle sit (second row) and wrapped it around her neck. She was struggling to get out but when she pulled it to her, she pulled it all the way out so the more she struggled, the tighter the seat belt around her neck got. Had our six year old not alerted us, this could've ended terribly. We immediately pulled over, got her unbuckled from her car seat to pull her closer to the seat belt for enough slack to get her head and neck out of the strangling of the seat belt. Immediately after the incident, our two year old clung tightly to mom and cried with red marks around her neck. She was scared to get back in the car. Dad took the middle seat belt and wrapped it around a head rest tightly to get it out of the toddlers reach.
