Child safety in the vehicle

We all know that child car safety is quite simple, provided that you follow a couple of simple steps. The first thing you need to do is to fit child restraints correctly and make sure you always buckle your kids into them correctly. In addition, it's equally important to seat your kids appropriately so that you can avoid any fighting between them and keep them happy while on the road.

Child Restraint Basics

The first item related to child car safety that we're going to look into is the child restraint. It's an absolute must for children aged up to 7 years to travel in a child restraint. You must remember to always choose, properly fit, and use the right child restraint suitable for your child's age and size. Once your kid's shoulders reach higher than the upper shoulder height marker seen on child restraints, your kid will be ready to move to a bigger child restraint.


You can set a great example for your kids if you start wearing your own seatbelt on regular basis. It's no lie that kids the most when observing the adults around them. You must always check if all seatbelts are done up before you start driving. If your child's restraint straps are twisted or undone, don't start driving. If your child undoes buckles or removes straps, stop the car and do up the buckles or straps again.

Child Car Safet Tips

Here are a few extra safety tips when traveling together with your children in the car:

1. Make sure the legs, head, and arms of your child are always inside the car when you are driving or when parked on the side of the road.

2. Make sure the childproof locks are activated when the vehicle is moving or standing still so your children can't get out. Usually, these locks are inside the car doors.

3. You must always get your children in and out of your car on the kerbside, where there's no traffic.

Children with Specials Needs

If you have a child with additional needs, such as physical disability or medical condition, it's possible to have exceptions to the rules for child safety auto seats in Wilmingto.

Health professionals, like for instance occupational therapists can work closely with you in order to pick the most suitable restraint for your kid or to transform a restraint so that it can be useful for your kid. Bear in mind that only health professionals can alter restraints, suggest specialized restraints or propose restraint accessories.

The rise of the automotive industry in Kansas City

The rise of the automotive industry in Kansas City
Kansas City is officially the nation's second-largest auto hub. City’s long history of auto production dates back to 1913 when Henry Ford made a decision to choose this region to be the first one outside of Detroit for auto production. The most recent expansion of Ford Motor Co. in this particular area was in 2011. At that time, the company announced a $1.2 billion investment that was meant to expand and retool Kansas City Assembly Plant, which is located in Claycomo. This plant is responsible for manufacturing the Transit and the F-150 full-size van.

Ford has a strong and steady relationship with area school districts which are part of the company’s Next Generation Learning initiative. Launched in 2006, that initiative provides mentoring, technical support, coaching, and financial support to 20 communities around the country.

The most common suspension problems

The most common suspension problems 

The main purpose of the car suspension system is to maximize friction between the vehicle's tire and the road surface, thus boosting passenger comfort and providing steering stability. Over the years, car suspensions have evolved a lot, and as of now, modern vehicles have more sophisticated suspension systems than ever before. However, problems still occur from time to time, in spite of all the improvements in suspension systems. Suspension components, such as anti-roll bars, shock absorbers, control arms, springs, and other parts take a pounding each and every day from railroad tracks, road salt, potholed streets, gravel, snow, rain, dirt and grime, and the usual piece of scrap metal or other types of debris that drivers see in the last possible moment.

Under the aforementioned conditions, it should not come as a surprise that any component of the suspension system can be damaged or worn out over the years. There are various symptoms and nois…
