It's a fact that properly installed child safety seats save the lives of children. According to Saferide4Kids, "anywhere from 72% to 84% of child restraints show some sort of misuse. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows 46% of misuse that can interfere with the safety of the child in the child restraint.

As a parent, I can tell you that it doesn't matter how smart you are unless you are specially trained to install a child safety seat, chances are you'll get it wrong no matter how carefully you read your vehicle's owner manual instructions on installing a child safety seat. No worries parents, you can get a free child safety seat check for your installed seats on December 23 from 3 pm to 6 pm in Unadilla, NY.  Certified Passenger Safety Technicians will install, inspect and/or check your child's car seat.
