Free Car Seat Safety Checks

Is your car safety seat installed correctly? If not, you are like most parents. More than 90 percent of car seats checked in Sacramento last year were installed improperly. Having your child in a properly installed car seat reduces his/her risk of death or serious injury by as much as 71 percent.
