Installing a baby car seat correctly is vital for your child’s safety. Some people may think that it’s easy as long as you can read the instruction book and follow directions. In reality, it is not so easy. It is helpful to get your child car seat inspected by a licensed technician. Lucky for us, there are free car seat inspection events that we can attend to get our car seat checked.
Free Car Seat Inspection 2020
For the month of February, the New York State DMV is offering free child car seat inspections for Clinton and Essex counties.
If you are near these counties and need to get your car seat checked, you should take advantage of this opportunity. This is a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have. This initiative is to help keep children buckled safely in cars. Ensuring that your car seat is checked and installed properly is a lifesaving event.
