Free car seat installation inspections Sept. 19

Car seat safety specialists Saturday, Sept. 19, will examine child car seats for proper use, installation, age/size appropriateness and will alert parents to any recalled products from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the McCarthy Chevrolet service department, 675 N. Rawhide, Olathe.

No appointment is needed. Inspections will be on a first come, first checked basis. Safety checks take approximately 30 minutes per seat.

This event also is a great way for grandparents to make sure their grandchildren are buckled up right.

Statistics indicate that of those kids who are buckled up, three out of four are not restrained properly or their safety seat is incorrectly installed. Child car seats are extremely effective when accurately used and installed, reducing the risk of death by 71 percent for infants and 54 percent for toddlers.

Safe Kids Johnson County in partnership with McCarthy Chevrolet is co-sponsoring these lifesaving safety checks.

For more information about car seat safety checks call Safe Kids Johnson County at: 913-477-8312.
