Child Passenger Safety week is Sept 17 – 23 this year, a week when safety technicians provide resources to educate parents and caregivers on how to safely transport children in their cars.

Car seats and boosters provide protection for infants and children in a crash, yet car crashes are a leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 13.

That’s why it is so important to choose and use the right car seat every time your child is in the car.

In King County and across Washington State, trained car seat technicians will check your child restraint for any recalls, ensure the restraint is appropriate for your vehicle and child, and that you are using it properly.

It is extremely important to have your car seats inspected because more than 80 percent of child restraints inspected last year were being used incorrectly.
