Motor vehicle crashes remain the leading cause of death for children. It is well documented that over 90% of child restraints on the road today are used improperly. The many models of restraints and hundreds of vehicle types create confusion, frustration, and incompatibility issues. 

Child passenger safety is a priority. 

If you are in need of a car seat for your child (at no cost) AND/OR are in need of information and demonstration on the proper choice and installation of your child’s seat, we can help.
