What is a car seat check?
Child car seat checks teach parents and caregivers how to correctly use their child's car seat or seat belt. Nearly 90 percent of child car seats are used incorrectly, so your child's car seats will be checked to be sure:
- It has not been recalled
- It meets federal safety standards.
- It is installed correctly.
- It is appropriate for the child's age, weight and height.
- The child is properly secured in the seat.
