Car Seat Inspection

Car Seat Inspections

Motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death for children in the US. Buckling up is the best way to save lives and reduce injuries. A third of children who died in crashes in 2011 were not buckled up.

To ensure the safety of our youngest citizens, car seats are inspected for proper installation by a Certified Passenger Safety Technician for FREE. These inspections take place at Station 87 (4680 Golden Foothill Parkway, El Dorado Hills, CA 95762) by appointment only.  Please call (916) 933-6623 and press 0 to schedule an appointment.Car seat size
