Car Safety and Kids

If you have ever been in a car accident then you know how scary it can be to not be able to get out of a vehicle because it literally locks a person in completely. That is one of the things I remember from last accident the most. I could NOT get out and my car was collapsing down on me. All the doors locked on me, and the automatic locks wouldn’t unlock or budge.

There are times when I worry about my kids getting locked into our vehicle because they quite literally cannot get out without me unlocking the doors for them from the front. Another issue that concerns me is the seat belts not releasing them. Seat belts are a wonderful thing and I am a big advocate for them because they saved my life. However, I have considered getting a seat belt cutter at

Yet, if I were to do that and we did get in a car accident I still don’t see where it would help me a whole lot except to give safety personnel the chance to save more than one of us at the same time. Plus if my husband came he could bring them with him too. So, it’s definitely something to consider.

Would you get a set for your family if you thought it would save your life or that of your family members?
