The primary purpose of this program is to educated parents about proper child restraint use. The best child restraint is the restraint that fits your vehicle, fits your child, and is used correctly every time. More than 80% of the child restraints on the road today are being misused according to the national safety council.
Misuses may include:
- The restraint not being installed into the vehicle correctly.
- The restraint harness or seat belt not being adjusted to properly fit and protect the child.
- The restraint is not appropriate for the age and size of the child.
- The child restraint is installed in the wrong seating position in the vehicle.
Car seat checks are done by appointment only.
The installation/inspection takes approximately 30-40 minutes per seat. Parents should plan accordingly. As indicated above, this program is educational by nature and is not solely an installation service.
