Is your child's car seat safely fitted?

13 August 2018

Have you ever wondered if your child's car seat is fitted properly and securely?

A great opportunity to get peace of mind is happening this week outside Mothercare at Teesside Shopping Park.

On Thursday 16 August, between 11am to 4pm, qualified experts will be on hand to offer parents and carers advice and free checks of their current child car seat setup.

Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council's Road Safety team has joined forces with Middlesbrough Council and Good Egg Car Safety to help residents be sure of the suitability and safe fitting of their child restraints.

Councillor Mike Smith, Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council's Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport, said: "Every parent or carer wants to be assured that they have fitted a car seat correctly so this is a great opportunity to get first-hand advice from the experts.

"Fitting a car seat isn't a simple business and mistakes are common and easy to make. To avoid any uncertainty, I'd encourage anyone unsure to come down to the event this week and be satisfied that their child's seat is fitted safely."
