More than 500 Car Seat Safety Checkup Events Happening in September

Child Passenger Safety Week is September 18-24, but at Safe Kids we’re celebrating all month long.

It’s so important to make sure your child is riding as safely as possible in the car that we’re hosting more than 500 community car seat safety checkup events throughout the month of September. Find an event in your area by clicking here: Events are updated weekly.

If you aren’t able to attend an event, don’t worry, we have you covered. Here is a handy checklist for you to do a quick check of your car seat at home. And if you’re wondering if your child is ready to move to a forward-facing seat, to a booster seat, or to a seat belt alone, here’s an interactive graphic to help you know.

If you are having trouble installing your car seat or want to check if its installed correctly, ask a certified child passenger safety technician (CPST) for help. CPSTs have been specially trained to provide guidance to parents and caregivers, and are eager to help. Find one here.

For more information, we have car seat, booster seat and seat belt tips for you on our website.
