“4 out of 5 Children’s Car Seats are NOT installed correctly!”

From the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

 

“Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children from 3 to 14 years old.”

 

This is not okay, especially when we have so many places in New Jersey that offer FREE DROP IN Car Seat inspections. If you aren’t sure if your child’s car seat is installed correctly, if you’ve been searching where can I get my child’s car seat inspected, this listing is for you.

Jersey Family Fun has compiled a schedule of where and when you can have your child’s car seat inspected in New Jersey at NO CHARGE with NO APPOINTMENT. Many other locations may be available by appointment.

 

At each of these car seat inspection locations there are caring and certified car seat inspectors. They will ask you some questions about your child’s height, age, and weight. Then, they will work with you to determine if your child’s in the right seat for them and if that seat has been installed correctly. If there’s a problem, they may even be able to provide your child with a new car seat. There is never any judgement.
