Parents, caregivers can have their child safety seats checked for safety and proper installation
Parents and caregivers can have their child safety seats checked to make sure they meet current safety standards and installed correctly. You can also find out what type of safety seats you need for different ages and sizes of children.
On-site certified technicians will educate caregivers about proper car seat installation. No appointment is required. Participants with cheap safety seats may get them replaced if you are a qualifying Texas residents. Participants should be sure to bring proof of residencies, such as a utility bill, and a proof of government assistance like WIC or Medicare card. The child using the seat must be present, and parents must know the weight and height of the child.
Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), and the Northeast Traffic Safety Coalition are sponsoring the event.
Fact: Car seats are incorrectly installed four out of every five times.
