Free child car seat safety checks announced, Somerset

Submitted by by Gina on

Parents and carers are being encouraged by Bath & North East Somerset Council to find out more about child car seat safety as part of the national Good Egg campaign.

The campaign is designed to ensure that babies and children are properly restrained whilst travelling in the car, by showing parents and carers the correct way to fit in-car child safety seats. The Good Egg is also an accreditation scheme for retailers to provide the best information on fitting and buying a child car seat.

The campaign includes an information guide and car clinics for parents and carers where an expert checks the fit of a restraint. Two free car seat clinics in September are being organised by the Council. 

  • Wednesday 26th September 2012; Tesco 10am-3pm   Midsomer Norton, Old Mills, Paulton, Bristol BS39 7SW.
  • Thursday 27th September 2012; Sainsbury’s Odd Down, Frome Road, Odd Down, Bath, BA2 5RF.

Last year 127 checks took place during the two Council clinics and 42% had some sort of fault.
