EMERYVILLE, CA, April 5, 2017 – In honor of California Safety Seat Checkup Week, April 2-8, 2017, AAA is reinforcing its commitment to Child Passenger Safety by promoting free child seat inspections at participating branches, throughout the year to the general public. Membership with AAA is not required to receive this free public service.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 90% of child safety seats are used incorrectly. Helping to reduce that statistic is the cause of AAA’s Child Passenger Safety program, which is committed to ensuring parents are confident knowing that their child is safe because their car seat was properly installed.
“AAA has been a leader and advocate for traffic safety for over a 100 years, and one area we’ve been particularly committed to is child passenger safety. That’s why we offer this free service to the entire community,” said John Moreno, spokesperson for AAA Northern California. “We want to help give families some peace of mind knowing that they’re traveling as safe as possible if an accident were to occur.”
AAA offers free inspection services with certified Child Passenger Safety (CPS) technicians at most branches in Northern California to educate families on how to properly secure their children in car and booster seats.
