Three out of four child safety seats are installed improperly in vehicles. To help more families buckle up their children properly, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles hosted car seat check events during National Child Passenger Safety Week, Sept. 19 – 25, as a springboard to educate parents and to raise awareness of the national guidelines for putting children in the proper restraint for their age, size and weight.

The rollover simulator was also used to educate the importance of seatbelts. During the safety check there were a total of fifty five car seats checked and twelve new seats and twelve new booster seats were provided and professionally installed. Thanks to the hard work of those members the children of the panhandle are safer.
