Free Child Car Seat Checkup Monday

Not sure if you’ve properly installed your child’s car seat? Have your car seat checked or fitted for free by a Collier County Sheriff’s Office child passenger safety technician Monday, April 13.

CCSO will participate in a child car seat safety inspection event in cooperation with Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida and SafeKids Lee/Collier counties from 9 a.m. to noon at the Collier County Health Department, 3339 U.S. 41 E., Bldg H, in the Collier County government complex in East Naples.

A certified CCSO car seat technician at the event will work with you to make sure your child is in the right seat and fitted properly, and that the seat is correctly installed in your vehicle.

Bilingual fitting technicians will be available.

Florida law requires parents to use a child restraint system. If children are not properly restrained while traveling in a vehicle, they could easily be injured in a collision or any other emergency situation.

A new Florida law went into effect Jan. 1, requiring a child to remain in a child restraint device, car seat or booster seat until their 6th birthday. Formerly only children through age 3 had to be in child restraints. The statute does provide exceptions.

Call 239.565.8371 for more information.
