Free car seat inspections available Feb. 1 in Edmond
EDMOND — Free child car seat inspections will be offered from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at AAA, 1701 S Broadway.
Parents, grandparents and caregivers are urged to attend. The child using the seat and the car seat in use must be present. Inspection and instruction by nationally certified technicians typically takes about 30 minutes. Participants will learn how to properly install car seats and check those already installed.
“Parents have the best of intentions when using a car seat, but they may be unknowingly placing their child in harm’s way due to simple installation mistakes,” said Leslie Gamble, AAA Oklahoma spokesperson. “Anyone using a child safety seat in their vehicle should educate themselves, even if they’ve been using one for years, to make sure it’s installed correctly.”
