National Seat Check Saturday

Saturday 10:00 am to 1:00 pm
Target Parking Lot | 4737 Valley View Blvd. | Roanoke

Road injuries are the leading cause of preventable deaths and injuries to children in the United States. Correctly used child safety seats can reduce the risk of death by as much as 71 percent.

Studies show that 73 percent of car seats are not used or installed correctly. It takes only about 15 minutes for a certified child passenger safety technician to ensure your car seat is being used correctly, and it could save your child's life.

At this event, our nationally certified child passenger safety technicians can check your car seat to ensure it is installed correctly and answer questions.

There is no cost to attend, and no registration is required.
