Free Child Seat Inspections During Child Passenger Safety Week
SAVANNAH, GEORGIA - Child Passenger Safety Week is here. According to safety officials, recent crash data suggests that motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death in young children throughout the United States. A new study discovered that most car seats are not installed or used properly.
Safety experts maintain that a correctly installed car seat reduces a child's death risk by as much as 71 percent.
The Governor's Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) offers several options to help you install your child's car seat correctly.
The Governor's Office of Highway Safety is offering free Child Safety Seat inspections. The car seat inspections are available by appointment only. To schedule a car seat inspection, simply call the nearest GOHS inspection station. You may find the closest GOHS inspection station by visiting gahighwaysafety.org. The complimentary car seat inspection takes approximately 20 minutes.
The car seat inspection technician will:
- Ensure your child seat is properly installed;
- Remove and check the child car seat for damage;
- Make sure that your child's car seat is not a recalled unit;
- Ensure the child car seat is correct for the size and age for the child;
- Instruct the motor vehicle owner on how to properly install the child car seat in their vehicle;
- Show the motor vehicle's owner how to place and secure the child in their child car seat; and
- Discuss other motor vehicles and child car seats the child may ride in and give instructions on repeating the correct procedure in other vehicle
