Child Passenger Safety Seat Booklet

Are you using your car seat correctly?

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Is my child’s safety seat properly installed in my vehicle?

  • Is the safety seat I am using the right seat for my child?

  • Is my child securely seated in his/her safety seat?

  • Is my child ready for a booster seat?

  • Is my child ready to safely travel in a vehicle without a booster seat?

  • Can my child be placed in the forward facing position before he/she is two years old?

  • Is there a “BEST” car seat for my child?

If you are unsure, please consider coming to one of our Child Passenger Safety Inspection Stations.
