Is your car seat properly installed? CHP says it’s probably not.

KSEE Sunrise

September is Baby Safety Month and California Highway Patrol tells us more often than not car seats are installed incorrectly and many times parents are unaware. 

Things to keep in mind when buying and installing a car seat:

-There are front facing, back facing, as well as dual facing car seats

-Each seat has a safety expiration date

-Some cars have hooks for car seats and some are fastened with a seat belt — don’t use both methods

-When installing the car seat or putting a child in a car seat make sure there is no pull, slack, or give in the belt

To check if your car seat is installed correctly or to have a CHP officer help install a seat you can make an appointment: (559)705-2200
