Free child car seat safety checks

As families grow, it’s not unusual for parents and carers to move child seats around the car to accommodate kids of different ages.   

But whilst it’s tempting to fit child seats yourself, some things are best left to the experts.   

Car seats can be tricky to install, and it’s estimated that more than 50% of child restraints aren’t fitted correctly.

A correctly fitted seat can significantly reduce the risk of children getting injured in an accident, so that’s why it’s best to get your seat fitted by a professional – not just the first time it’s installed, but every time your child progresses from one seat to the next.   

Has it been a while since you checked your child’s ride?   

Transurban has teamed up with Kidsafe to offer free car seat checks during National Road Safety Week (15-22 May 2022).   

A 15 minute car seat check will give you peace of mind next time you hit the road. You’ll get your car seats checked by a professional and get the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about driving safely with kids.   

Kidsafe experts will check for any errors with your car seats, fix installation issues, and if needed, teach you how to use your seats correctly to prevent future issues.
