CHILD SAFETY SEAT INSPECTIONS

The Department of National Transportation and Safety Board has determined that 4 out of 5 child safety seats are incorrectly installed in all vehicles. The general public is also uninformed about child seats and their life expectancy. We have trained and certified inspectors who would be glad to inspect your child’s safety seat for proper installation. For more information about safety seats and inspections, you may contact our department staff for scheduling times @ 205.631.6660.
