Car Seat Checks
There are so many kinds of vehicles on the road today. There are also a great many different types of car seats on the market. Is it any wonder that installing and using car seats properly is complicated to say the least? It’s for this reason that free car seat fitting stations (also known as car seat inspections or car seat checks) are available all over the country. Trained technicians are ready and willing at each car seat check to teach you the best way to install and correctly use your child’s car seat.
In most areas, free car seat checks are held periodically throughout the year. The times and locations are often convenient. Common locations for car seat checks include the hospital, fire station, safety fair, car dealership and more. If you’re unable to attend a car seat check or station, it may be possible for you to contact a child passenger safety technician by telephone or email and ask them your questions.
It is highly recommended you have the safety of your infant car seat checked for correct installation at one of the mentioned types of car seat checks.
To locate a car seat fitting station or car seat check near you, or to simply contact a certified child passenger safety seat technician, you can visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or Safe Kids USA websites. Information can also be found by calling the NHTSA Auto Safety Hotline at 1-888-DASH-2-DOT. Additionally, you may always call your local fire or police department’s non emergency phone numbers or the hospital.
