Local transportation safety advocates are hosting a FREE car and booster seat inspection event on October 6 at the Gum Springs Community Center at 8100 Fordson Road in Alexandria Virginia.
The event will leverage a community partnership between Transurban, the operator of the 495/95/395 Express Lanes, Safe Kids Fairfax County and State Farm Agent Kenya Z. The partners aim to help children in the greater Mount Vernon region stay safe while in the car by educating parents and caregivers.
Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians will deliver a range of services at the event:
• Inspect – and if necessary, adjust – car and booster seats already installed in vehicles
• Ensure settings and positioning are appropriate for the child passenger who rides in the seat
• Provide hands-on assistance to help finalize the installation of new seats and
• Educate parents and caregivers on proper seat usage throughout age groups
Research from Transurban finds that 74% of people in the Greater Washington Area are driving with self-installed car seats or boosters — critical child safety products that haven’t been placed or inspected by a certified technician. This is especially concerning since 46% of car and booster seats are used incorrectly, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
