Certified child car seat technicians hosting Saturday checkup event in Lubbock

LUBBOCK, Texas -

(Press Release)

The Texas Department of Transportation, along with our safety partners, will host a car seat checkup event from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., on Saturday, Sept. 22, at Safety City in Lubbock, 4500 Avenue U.

Certified car seat technicians will be on-site to teach parents and caregivers how to determine if their child is in the right seat for the child’s age and size. Parents are asked to know their child’s height and weight, and should bring their current safety seat for proper installation.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nationally, 3 out of 4 safety seats are not used correctly. A Texas study found that nearly 9 out of 10 babies and toddlers were riding in safety seats, but more than a quarter of those safety seats were being used incorrectly.

To avoid one of the most common mistakes caregivers make – using the wrong size safety seat, visit the TxDOT Web site to find the appropriate safety seat for your child’s age.
