FREE CAR SEAT CHECK

Sunday, September 15 from 1-4pm

In passenger cars, child safety seats reduce the risk of fatal injury by 71 percent for infants and by 54 percent for toddlers. Most parents are confident that they are properly using their child's car seat, but in most cases (74-90%) it is being used incorrectly.
