Free Inspections by Appointment Offered Year-Round
The Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee (GTSC) today reminded parents and caregivers in Orange County that free car seat checks by certified child passenger safety technicians are available on Saturday, January 28 in Middletown.

These events are part of a year-round safety initiative in which state and local law enforcement agencies and various community safety partners offer free car seat inspections. Trained technicians use the “Learn, Practice, and Explain” model to educate parents and caregivers on how to choose and properly install the appropriate seat for their child’s age and size and their vehicle, so it can be used correctly every time.
Those who cannot attend this free car seat check event can make an appointment with a local fitting station. Find more information on upcoming car seat check events near you.
