I mentioned a few months back that our law firm was hosting the sixth annual Seat Check Saturday event in conjunction with National Child Passenger Safety Week. The event gives parents and caregivers an opportunity to ensure their child safety seats are properly installed in their vehicles. Seat Check Saturday was held at The Shoppes at EastChase, whose owners have graciously allowed us to set up there year after year.
The reason we like to bring in certified technicians and host this event is every year, thousands of children are tragically injured or killed in automobile crashes. For children ages 3-6, and 8-14, it is the leading cause of death. Safety seats, booster seats and seat belts are required in all 50 states and the District of Columbia and our territories for children traveling in motor vehicles. But these restraints cannot work if they are not installed properly. Sadly, three out of every four child restraints are not properly used. My hope is that those parents who have taken the time to visit one of these events learned how to properly fit and install their child’s seat so that they are safe.
Mike James, Alabama Statewide Child Passenger Safety Coordinator as well as other certified technicians were on site to instruct parents and caregivers.
