According to Safe Kids Worldwide, 73% of car seats are not used or installed correctly. Improper use of a child safety seat can result in injuries or death.
Safety Seat Inspection Program
The Automotive Safety Program and Indiana University School of Medicine, with funding from the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, has established a network of Child Safety Seat Inspection Stations where parents and caregivers can make an appointment to have their child safety seat inspected by a certified child passenger safety technician. The certified child passenger safety technician will:
Check for proper fit and proper installation
Evaluate the child's current restraint for recalls
Instruct the parent on how to properly use and install the child restraint
This is a free service, and we encourage all parents and caregivers to schedule an appointment to visit 1 of approximately 109 Child Safety Seat Inspection Stations located across Indiana. A complete listing of child safety seat inspection stations can be viewed at Indiana University's Automotive Safety page. You may also contact the Indiana Automotive Safety Program at 1-800-KID-N-CAR.
