Child Passenger Safety Week: Car seat inspections offered

"When it comes to child passenger safety, there is absolutely no room for error. It's critical that parents and caregivers understand how to properly install their child seats in their vehicles," said David Strickland, U.S. Department of Transportation's administrator for National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. "We urge parents to visit one of the thousands of seat check sites across the nation to ensure kids are safely buckled up—every trip, every time."
