Child Passenger Safety Seats: Free South Florida Inspections in September

September Safety WeekAccording to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and SafeCar.gov, every 33 seconds one child under the age of 13 in our country is involved in a vehicle crash. US states require the use of car seats to help protect children in cars, vans, SUVs and pickups. These laws as well as “Child Passenger Safety Week” are dedicated to reduce injuries and save lives. The week of September 18-24, 2016 is “Child Passenger Safety Week” and September 24, 2016 is “National Seat Check Saturday”.

On behalf of the attorneys and staff at Goldman & Daszkal, P.A., we urge all parents and caregivers to take advantage of free car seat safety checks held across the state of Florida and throughout the country. It’s critical to make sure children are in the correct car seats for their age and size and to ensure that car seats are installed properly. Child Passenger Safety Technicians will be available at sites in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties to give hands-on advice and instructions.

According to the NHTSA, “children [should remain] rear-facing as long as possible up to the top height or weight allowed by their particular seats. Once a child outgrows the rear-facing car seat, he/she is ready to travel in a forward-facing car seat with a harness. After outgrowing the forward-facing car seat, a child should be placed in a booster seat until big enough to fit seat belts properly without help from a booster seat. The safest place for all kids under 13 is in the back seats of cars.

Follow these guidelines, review this detailed post, and visit http://www.safercar.gov for more detailed information. Below is a list of the 2016 Child Car Seat Safety Inspection Sites for South Florida:
