Learn car seat safety 101

-A A +A
By Special to the Monitor

Most parents have had at least one altercation with a car seat.  

Whether trying to rescue a child from an aggressive seat belt or working up a sweat trying to get the seat belt to buckle, car seats can be frustrating.  And often in the end it is uncertain if the car seat was installed properly.

Parents put their children in car seats to protect them.  

However, there are many styles of car seats and just as many types of vehicles in which to install them, often making installing a car seat a daunting experience.

To help take the guess work out of installing a car seat correctly, Family Strengths Network has joined with Safer New Mexico Now to offer a Car Seat Safety Clinic.

Safer strives to decrease the number of people injured in motor vehicle crashes through the correct use of seat belts and child safety seats. The clinic is designed to educate parents and help them feel confident that their child is safe while riding in any vehicle.

This free clinic is being offered from 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Friday and includes a car seat safety inspection.  Seats will be inspected for recalls, broken parts, improper installation and appropriateness for a child. Each inspection appointment is 20 minutes and only one appointment per family is needed.
