If you don't know if your child's safety seat is properly installed then you can have it checked for free.

The child seat safety check will take place between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Friday, July 18 at the Texana Bank rear parking lot on East Campbell St. in  Linden, Texas.

On-site certified technicians will educate you about proper car seat installation.  Replacement car seats will also be provided to those with substandard safety seats for qualifying Texas residents.

You should be sure to bring proof of residency, such as a utility bill and proof of government assistance, WIC or Medicare card.

The event is being sponsored by the Texas Department of Transportation and the Northeast Texas Traffic Safety Coalition. 

For more information you can contact TxDOT Traffic Safety Specialist Irene Webster at (903) 799-1221.
