Free Child Restraint Checking Days

 

Transport related injuries to children are one of the leading causes of hospital admission. A correctly fitted child car restraint will provide the best protection for your child whilst travelling in a motor vehicle.

Given a high number of child car restraints are self-installed there is a large percentage that are installed and/or used incorrectly. Free Child Car Restraint Checking Days are a great opportunity to come along and have your car checked by experienced child car restraint specialists to ensure your children are safe when travelling on the road.

Kidsafe WA has been running free child car restraint checking days since 2003. In the first year there were 2 checking days held, where approximately 50 child car restraints were checked. Since then the service’s popularity has steadily grown with 6 Free Child Car Restraint Checking Days held in 2015.

Between July 2009 and December 2014 Kidsafe WA provided 29 Free Child Car Restraint Checking Days and during these events our Kidsafe WA’s child car restraint fitters have checked and adjusted over 1,800 child car restraints.

Kidsafe WA is currently seeking a partner to support us to run our Free Child Car Restraint Checking Days in 2018. Sponsoring a day costs between $3,000 -$5,000.
