WCSO joins National Seat Check Saturday

Warren County Sheriff's Office

National Seat Check Saturday is today and the Warren County Sheriff’s Office is offering free car seat checks.

From 10 am to 1 pm today at their office on Skyline Vista Drive, they will have certified technicians checking car seats and educating parents and caregivers of the importance of a proper car seat.

The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration has found that 46% of car seats are misused or an inappropriate size.

Children 8-12 are especially at risk as many parents skip the booster seat step when moving on from a car seat.
