Free car seat check events for Child Passenger Safety Week

September 15, 2023

A car seat is the most important seat a child will ever sit in. National Child Passenger Safety Week, September 17- 23, is right around the corner and a great time to make sure your child’s car seat fits. The Safe Start Car Seat Team will be in Boundary County Saturday, October 7, at South Boundary Fire Station 1, 20 Stagecoach Road, Naples. Last year in Idaho there were 1,943 crashes involving a child passenger between birth and six years old.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car crashes are the leading cause of death for children in the United States.

“We all want to protect our kids as best we can, but car seats can be complicated even for experienced parents or caregivers,” said Carma McKinnon, State Child Passenger Safety Coordinator. “Seat Check Saturday is an opportunity to get free help from an expert, to ensure our little ones are as safe as possible.”

At these seat check events, certified child passenger safety technicians will check if a car seat is the right type for a child’s age and size, check that it fits correctly, and that it is properly installed in the vehicle.
