With the holidays approaching, the time you spend in the driver’s seat is bound to increase.
There's a glimmer of something brilliant in Sense-A-Life, the small connected device developed by a couple of dads to make sure kids don't get left in hot cars.
Have parents unknowingly been putting their kids in the wrong seat all along?
The Department of Transportation is fining Graco $10 million for delaying its recall of 6.1 million car seats last year. The safety campaign began because latches on some of the company's products could be very difficult to unfasten, which could put children in danger.
The federal agency charged with keeping motorists safe on US roads is investigating whether child car-seat manufacturer Graco delayed in recalling millions of defective car seats.
Collectively, the 6.1 million seats comprise the largest recall of children's car seats in U.S. history.

One month ago, it was Graco car seats that were in our headlines, following a 4.2-million-unit recall over reports of parents having to cut their children out of the seats after the buckles seized. Now, Graco's competitor, Evenflo, is in the hot seat (no pun intended).
Graco is recalling 403,222 more car seats over a potentially deadly problem with their buckles.
Did you know 3 out of every 4 car seats are used incorrectly? According to safercar.gov, parents haven't been doing enough to keep their kids safe on the road, which has resulted in vehicle crashes becoming one of the leading causes of death for children between 1 and 13 years old.
