Parents and caregivers can get their child safety seats installed for free by certified technicians this Saturday at nine locations across Louisiana.

National Seat Check Saturday, sponsored by the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission and the Louisiana Passenger Safety Task Force, is the culmination of Child Passenger Safety Week. Certified safety seat technicians will be available 9 a.m. noon Saturday, Sept. 23, at Southwest Beverage, 3860 Broad St.

Modern child safety seats are built to protect children if the vehicle is in a crash, but the seats must be installed correctly to be effective, LHSC Executive Director Lisa Freeman said.

“Seat Check Saturday is a great opportunity to meet with trained technicians who can show you which safety seat is right for your child, make sure it is properly installed, and ensure your child is properly restrained,” Freeman said.
