Following child safety seat laws is essential to keep children safe while out on the road. Make sure your child is traveling safely by attending the Covenant Health System Free Car Safety Seat Check on Friday, March 9 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Kohl's Department Store, located at 3307 98th St.

Certified inspectors will check car seats to see if they are properly installed as well as provide information on car seat safety.

While 96 percent of parents and caregivers believe their child safety seats are properly secured, research shows seven out of 10 children are improperly restrained according to

Join Covenant this Friday to make sure you are familiar with the Texas child passenger safety laws and to be sure your child's car safety seat is properly secured.
