The majority of car seats are improperly installed and improperly used. Thankfully, MCPD has partnered with Safe Kids and Texas Children’s Hospital and has several officers who are certified car seat technicians. The best part, car seat checks are 100% FREE and only require about 45 minutes of your time per car seat.
A car seat check is more than just a technician looking at your car seat to see if it’s properly installed. Working with a Car Seat Technician will be a one-on-one learning experience. When you leave, you should be confident that the car seat is installed correctly and feel comfortable reinstalling it on your own.
