3 of 4 parents are making this mistake

Most child car safety seats are used incorrectly, with an average of 3 mistakes per seat. Get yours checked for free this weekend.

Your child’s car seat is probably too loose. Maybe harness straps are through the wrong slots, or are not secured. Your infant seat may be at the wrong angle, or facing the wrong direction.

On Saturday, September 21, Safe Kids USA will be conducting Car Seat Check-Up Events across the country. Trained technicians will check your safety seats, and teach you how to install and use them correctly to keep your children as safe as possible in the car.
