Rear-facing car seats have been proven to be up to five times safer for children compared to forward-facing. Frontal crash tests show that the forces acting on the neck are up to five times greater when the child is sitting forward-facing compared to rear-facing. A rear-facing car seat’s biggest advantage is that it supports the child’s entire back, neck and head, distributing the crash forces over a larger area and therefore significantly reduces the forces imposed on the neck. Therefore, a rear-facing car seat gives your child better protection and reduces the risk of injury in the event of a collision.
