In order to assist in maintaining the safety of our youngest passengers on the road in Grand County, there will be a car seat checkpoint Monday, Sept. 25 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Moab Regional Hospital, located at 450 West Williams Way.
The event is free and will have certified child passenger safety technicians on-site to help parents ensure their car seats are installed correctly.
Technicians will also talk with parents and caregivers about what steps need to be taken as their child grows and best practices to make sure their child is as safe as possible while riding in a car.
Car seat inspections offer drivers the chance to receive assistance and guidance from certified car seat technicians regarding proper installation of their child safety and booster seats.
“Car seats are complicated. We know parents and caregivers want what is best for those they love,” said Cambree Applegate, Safe Kids Utah coordinator with the Utah Department of Health. “Taking time out of your day to get your car seats checked is a simple way to ensure children are travelling in the car safely.”
