About Child Passenger Safety Week

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Child Passenger Safety Week is a time for parents and care givers to ensure your car seats and booster seats are appropriate for your children. Double-check that your children are in the right types of seats for their ages and sizes, that the car seats fit your children properly, and that the seats are correctly installed in your vehicle. If you aren’t sure, Child Passenger Safety Technicians are available to help you make sure.
