National Child Passenger Safety Week

National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA)
National Child Passenger Safety Week
September 12-18, 2009

75% of Child Safety seats are installed incorrectly, putting children at risk - that is 3 out of 4 seats. This Saturday, September 12 is designated as Seat Check Saturday, by using this link, you will be able to find the nearest seat check to you. (FYI - they are not in all areas, if there is not a seat check near you, call your local fire department - they are very helpful in either helping make sure your child seat is installed correctly or pointing you in the direction of an agency who will.)

The LATCH landing page can be found here. There is much more information available on that web page, please go take a look and make sure that your child is riding in a SAFE, SECURE child seat.

Make sure your child seat has not been recalled here.
Register your child seat here.
