It’s rare a day goes by that the girls aren’t in their car seats. Ever since they each moved up to the next size seat a few months ago, I’ve been wanting to get them checked but hadn’t gotten to it yet. When I heard there was a free check event in Mesa this weekend, I took it was a sign.
After tumbling Saturday morning, we headed to the Larry H. Miller Nissan dealership in Mesa. The good news was that the car seats were, for the most part, installed properly and the girls were buckled in the right way. But they did suggest a few tweaks to improve safety.
Since I’m not the car seat expert, I will not go into detail on the adjustments we made. But there are two more free events coming up in the Valley this month, in celebration of National Child Passenger Safety Month, so you can go get your seats checked out, too! For those of you not in the Phoenix area, check out Safe Kids to find an event closer to you.
At the events below, car seats and child booster seats will be checked for proper installation and informational safety materials will be offered with tips on how to maintain a properly installed car seat. Seats will be checked on a first-come, first-served basis. Light refreshments and water will be provided.
