Texas Department of Transportation and Texas A&M AgriLife, Bowie County are partnering together to offer free car seat inspections for the public
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 46 percent of all child car seats are misused.
On-site certified technicians can check to make sure seats are installed correctly and educate caregivers on the types of safety seats required for different ages and sizes of children.
"When car seats are used correctly, they can help reduce injuries and prevent fatalities in the event that a child is involved in a crash,” said TxDOT Atlanta District Traffic Safety Specialist Emyli Speer. “We encourage parents to make sure their car seat is installed safely and correctly. There will be no judgement, just education," Speer added.
No appointment is needed. For more information, contact TxDOT Traffic Safety Specialist Emyli Speer at (903) 310-8452.
