Dangers Of Reclining Car Seats

How many times have you been a passenger in a car and felt a little tired, so you put your seat all the way back and took a nap.

The Early Show's Debbye Turner explains many people mistakenly believe it's safe to ride in a car with the seat fully reclined. One couple believes that misconception led to their daughter's death, who was napping in a passenger seat during an automobile accident.

All car owner manuals warn of the safety risk of riding in a reclined seat. The problem, Turner explains, is that almost no one reads their owner's manual.

The Pannebecker have created a foundation to raise public awareness of the danger of riding in a car with the seat fully reclined. For information on the SnowAngel Foundation visit
