RSA says 80% of all children’s car seats are not fitted correctly

You’re being reminded just how important it is to make sure your child’s car seats are fitted correctly

You’re being reminded just how important it is to make sure your child’s car seats are fitted correctly as the latest figures show 4 out of 5 of them are not.

The Road Safety Authority’s ‘Check It Fits Service’ is returning to Carlow in just over two weeks time where they’ll be providing a free service for parents to avail of.

84 cars were checked in Carlow on their last visit back in September.

According to their statistics 80% are not installed correctly – and this can lead to serious injury or even death if the car is involved in a crash.
