Road traffic injuries are one of the leading causes of childhood injury in Australia. To ensure children are kept safe while travelling as passengers in motor vehicles, it is important to make sure they are using a child car restraint suitable for their age and size, and that it is correctly installed in the vehicle.
Kidsafe WA with the support of Britax will be offering free child car restraint checks at this year’s Perth Pregnancy Babies & Children’s Expo. Qualified child car restraint fitters will be available to check the fit of your child car restraint in the vehicle, and make any adjustments where necessary.
When: 10th, 11th and 12th August, 11.30am – 2.30pm each day.
Where: Claremont Showgrounds, entry via gate 1.
Cost: Free checks. Fits $20. Please note that any additional accessories required are at the cost of the customer. RSVP: No bookings required, but make sure to get down early so you don’t miss out!
Be sure to also visit Kidsafe WA’s information stall at the expo over the weekend for information and advice on child safety at home, on the road and at play.
