Safe Kids Dalton will be having a car seat check event on May 8th, 2015, 12pm to 2pm, at the Check Into Cash store at 1133 N. Glenwood Ave. If you'd like to have a certified car seat technician check to make sure your child safety seat is installed properly and is in good working order, come to this event and get it checked out by a professional.
Georgia law requires children use a child restraint system or booster seat until they’re at least eight years old (nine years old in Tennessee), but Safe Kids Dalton recommends that children use child restraint systems until they weigh at least 80 pounds regardless of age. Children are also found using car seats that have expired, have missing parts, or are not being used according to the manufacturers’ recommendations. Any of these elements of misuse can put children at risk of serious injury or death in a car crash.
