Free Car Seat Check Up Event

The Prince George’s County Police Department, in partnership with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Prince George’s Community Federal Credit Union, will hold its first back to school car seat check-up on Friday August 19th, at 6985 Muirkirk Meadows Drive, Beltsville, Maryland.  The car seat check-up is free and open to the public.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, while the installation and use of car seats may appear to be easy, 75%, or 3 out of 4, Maryland parents or caretakers use child vehicle restraints improperly.  

Certified car seat technicians will be on hand to check for recalls, ensure that child passenger car seats and boosters are installed correctly, and that the harness and vehicle installation are correct for the child.  The check-up is free, takes about 30 minutes and involves drivers, parents and caretakers.  All cars seats must be installed before arriving at the car seat check-up site.  

 The Prince George’s Community Federal Credit Union will replace the first 6 - 10 car seats that have been recalled or are unsafe.  Appointments are not necessary.  The car seat check-up will take place from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.

This information came to us from the Prince George’s Community Federal Credit Union.
