Car Seat Safety Check

Your child's care and safety are the most important things on our minds. Car accidents are the leading cause of child fatalities, but you possess the ability to make a life-saving impact.

Before your baby arrives, we urge you to contact a local certified safety seat technician for a free appointment to either install your child's car seat or verify its proper placement. Below, you'll find information about child car seat safety checks offered by the Fredericksburg Police Department. You can access a list of local resources here.

Remember, securing your child in a car seat correctly remains crucial as they grow. The necessity and specifications for car seat use evolve with your child's development. For important insights on car seats and boosters, consult the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Certified safety seat technicians are available to ensure your car seat is properly installed throughout your child's growth.
