It takes a lot more than a rear-seat DVD player to make a vehicle “family friendly”. The perfect family vehicle requires exceptional safety features, utilitarian design, versatile cargo and passenger space, and useful technology.
Even the smallest vehicle in our “family favorites”, the Honda Accord, can hold up to three car seats safely (although the middle, rear seat is only compatible with rear facing car seats). The largest vehicle in this lineup, the Honda Odyssey can hold up to FIVE carseats at once.
Tallahassee Police Department offers a Child Passenger Safety Program.
“Each Wednesday morning, certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians assist and educate parents/caregivers (on carseat installation and safety).
Appointment times are from 9am – 11am each Wednesday. There is a limited number of appointments available each Wednesday, so please be sure to call in advance. To schedule an appointment, please call 850-891-4261.
