Car seat clinic a success

Submitted by by Gina on

A car seat clinic to make sure that children are safe has revealed that the majority of seats were incorrectly fitted.

Bury Council’s road safety team, in association with Dynamic and ASDA Pilsworth, offered parents the chance to have their child car seats checked for free and ensure they were properly fitted.

Out of the 53 child car seats inspected, only 17 (32%) were fitted correctly, and two car seats had major faults. The majority of errors related to the car seat being too loose, too low, or a head restraint was obstructing the seat.
