Car Seat Safety

Can we all agree that nothing is more important than our children's well-being?  This is my precious daughter Trinity on her way to see The Wiggles.  She's grown out of that car seat and will turn eight in March but she has two younger brothers that are still strapped into these bad boys.

After a series of odd, yet amusing, events, it turns out that the Highland Village Police Department will respond very quickly to a child locked in a car.  

DID YOU KNOW:

  • Those rubber mat seat protectors are not a good idea.  They can compromise the integrity of the car seat as it relates to the "connection" with the seat.
  • If you get into an accident and your child is injured because of a car seat issue, they may deny your claim should you have a seat protector under the car seat.
  • There should be less than one inch of play in the car seat after it is straped in to the car.
  • To properly install the car seat, you need to put your back into it!  You will have to put your weight behind the installation!
I know other cities have this type of service but the City of Highland Village Police Department offers free car seat checks to give parents the confidence to know how to install those lifesavers, but also give them peace of mind that their babies are safe.  
 
If you're a resident of Highland Village and want to take advantage of a great free service by our city's finest, make sure to call 972-317-6551 and ask for George.  George was very helpful and is available from 3-7pm Monday-Friday to make sure your car seats are properly installed.  If you can call a few days ahead, that would help with scheduling.  What a fabulous service!
