    New Video - Why Children Should Travel Rear-Facing

    Dr. Marilyn Bull explains clearly and eloquently why children are safer when they travel in the rear-facing position. It's a great video and will be a part of the new standardized curriculum for training future CPS Technicians.

    Very good video! Would be nice if they would teach ERF up here. When I took the course 3 years ago, there was not a single mention of it.

    I am excited for all new technicians to watch this video! Now we'll know, that if they were awake, they all will have received the information on extended rear-facing.

    Re: New Video - Why Children Should Travel Rear-Facing

    Already had some one ask me about Rear facing in a rear impact crash. I linked them to Rachel's story. Are there any other good resources that can be used to answer that question?

    Here's another anecdote of a 16 month old RF in a severe rear-end collision, with the child unharmed (but FF older brother definitely banged and bruised): http://myangelsaliandpeanut.tripod.com/id5.html
