Car Seat Safety - National Seat Check Saturday



This Saturday, September 25, is National Seat Check Saturday. It is a great opportunity for you to take your car to a car seat inspection station to make sure that your safety seats are installed correctly. You can go here to find a location near you.

Why should you find a seat check near you?
Each year, thousands of children are tragically injured and killed in automobile accidents. In fact, motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children ages 3 and older.

The reason? Most parents and caregivers don't realize that their children aren't properly restrained in their car. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that nearly 3 out of 4 car seats are not used correctly.

We're aiming to change that with National Seat Check Saturday on September 25. As part of Child Passenger Safety Week (September 19-25), communities nationwide will have certified technicians available to provide hands-on child safety seat inspections and advice - for free!
Another great resource to find information on car seats including recalls and instructional videos is http://childcarsafety.adcouncil.org/.  Please take a moment to check out your seats and keep your kids safe.
