I was just wondering if any of you are worried about the side impacts when the child is rearfacing?? Are they more severe than FF??? I noticed in other countries (specifically sweden) that they latch the back of the carseat to the floor.
Also I was wondering about the leg room??? I was looking at some pics of the carseats in sweden ( a country who is known for extended rear facing) and I noticed their carseats are built differently than those here in the US and have spacing between the back of the seats and the carseat itself. Do you worry at all about leg breakage or anything like that since our carseats are not designed like those in sweden???
Sorry..I'm not trying to cause any trouble or anything.. I'm just curious since i was looking up info on rear facing.

This is a video about the importance of RF
And this is the story of a 65 MPH REAR END crash that had an 18 month old RF:
European car seats are made SO MUCH better than ours here in the US, which is why it's EVEN MORE important to ERF. We have harsher road conditions, but our child restraint systems don't compare. It's sad.
