The Washington D.C. area has become a playground for car seats and other safety-conscious devices.
Cars are parked, drivers can park in the center of the street, and passengers can get on the back of strollers to take selfies and take public transportation.
But many residents are still not comfortable with the idea of a stroller in the middle of their car.
“I think it’s not the safest thing for your kid,” said Sarah T. McFarland, a Washington state resident who lives in a suburb of Seattle.
“I think that there’s no reason to have a strollers in the car, and it’s really unsafe.”
One of the most popular car seat stowaways is a company called StrollerSafe, which sells strollers at $399.
StrollerSafety founder and CEO Scott Smith says his company is about to launch a limited edition, $400-per-year version of its popular Stroller Safe Stroller.
“StrollerSafe is going to be the safest car seat,” he said.
“We’ll make it the most affordable and the most convenient.”
For more than two decades, the car seat industry has been an industry driven by technology.
In the 1980s, when the safety technology was being perfected, the industry was trying to figure out how to get the best safety results by making strollers smaller and easier to use.
In the 1990s, the idea was to use a small, lightweight, high-tech stroller to protect people in cars and small vans.
In 1999, a car seat-friendly car was released that was nearly identical to the Stroller Safety Stroller, but much cheaper.
And in 2010, Strollersafe launched a $150 StrollerStroller that could fit in the backseat of an SUV.
The Stroller safe was not the first car seat that sold for $399 or less.
In 2010, the $600 seat-safe Stroller was launched.
The company quickly saw success, and now sells hundreds of car seats for less than $300.
Strollersafe’s Stroller Stroller is the only one of its kind, but it’s already selling well.
According to a company press release, Strollers sales have jumped 40 percent year-over-year.
And while the Strollers are a good idea, many people are still hesitant to use them.
“It’s still a novelty, and a bit of a novelty in the public eye,” said John O’Connell, a Seattle-based attorney who teaches car seat safety.
O’Connell said it’s important to educate people about how the safety equipment works, especially people with special needs.
“The first time you try to put your child in a car, the first thing you need to do is put your hand on the steering wheel, and then you need your eyes closed, your mouth closed, to make sure that you’re comfortable with your child,” he explained.
The new Stroller stroller will be a great way for families to get more comfortable in their strollers, but many car seats still aren’t safe for children.
According the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, at least 11 million children under age 6 are injured in crashes each year, with most of those injuries occurring in the front seat.
“Car seats are a great safety device, but we still have to educate parents to make the safest choice for their child,” said McFarlanders daughter, Sarah.
“The stroller is great, but the next time you want to take your child for a walk, the next thing to look for is that you need something safer.”
