Car crashes are the main cause of death for kids aged 1 to 13, and most of these deaths can be prevented with proper car seat safety.

TxDOT is teaming up with other safety advocates to host a car seat checkup event to ensure parents are informed on how to properly protect their children.

This Saturday (July 15) from 10 a.m. to noon, TxDOT will be hosting a car seat checkup event. At Safety City, certified car seat technicians will be on-hand to teach parents and caregivers how to know if their child is in the right seat for the child’s age and size. Technicians will also check car seats to ensure they’re used and installed the right way. 

Safety City is located at 4500 Avenue U.
