Child car seat inspection in Green Bay, WI

Keeping children safe in the vehicle is a top priority for any parent or guardian. As each child gets older and outgrows shoes and clothing, similarly they outgrow their car seat. Sometimes that transition is met with protest. “Why can’t I sit in the front seat,” they might say, or your pre-teen complaining, “I don’t need a booster seat.” No matter how consistent the protests, you know that studies show that they will be much safer in the correct car seat.

But when it’s time to upgrade to a new seat, it’s important to make sure that the replacement is correctly installed. Not only does that take a little bit of research, but it also warrants a trip to see a Child Passenger Safety technician. These professionals are from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and provide car seat inspections at no charge to you.
