Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among children under age fourteen in the United States. This sobering statistic reminds us that even if you’re a careful driver, you can’t eliminate the possibility of an auto accident. An age- and weight-appropriate child safety seat is a crucial step to keeping your child safe in the car. Statistics show that at least four out of five car seats are used incorrectly.
Parents and caregivers can call the permanent fitting station at Indiana University Health Arnett Hospital at 765-838-4670 to schedule an appointment to have their car seat installation checked by a certified technician FREE-OF-CHARGE.
What to bring to your inspection:
- Your child’s car seat
