Littlefield car seat checkup event scheduled for Saturday

Provided by the Texas Department of Transportation

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and the Lamb County Health & Safety Coalition will host a Car seat Checkup Event from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Lamb County Ag Center (1619 Hall Avenue) in Littlefield on Saturday, October 5. Certified car seat technicians will be on-site to teach parents and caregivers how to determine if their child is in the right seat for the child's age and size.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nationally, 3 out of 4 safety seats are not used correctly. A new Texas study found that nearly 9 out of 10 babies and toddlers were riding in safety seats, but more than a quarter of those safety seats were being used incorrectly.

To avoid one of the most common mistakes caregivers make - using the wrong size safety seat, visit www.texasclickitorticket.com to find the appropriate safety seat for your child's age. To schedule an appointment, call (806) 783-6481.
