These events are part of a yearlong safety initiative from the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee in which state and local law enforcement agencies and various community safety partners offer free child seat inspections. Trained technicians will educate parents and caregivers on how to choose and properly install the appropriate seat for their child’s age and size and their vehicle, so it can be used correctly every time.

Those who cannot attend one of the upcoming car seat check events can make an appointment with a local fitting station. Find more information on upcoming car seat check events near you here.
