Majority of parents fail proper child car seat check in Orillia
If you think your have your child’s car seat installed properly, you might be wrong.
This from the Orillia OPP which recently ran a child seat spot check at the Michael’s parking lot.
Trained officials from Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit checked 51 child seats during the day.
About 73% of the checked seats had something wrong, including being installed incorrectly, expired or being completely wrong for the weight, height and age of the child.
All parents who participated were given a tutorial on how to correctly use a child seat.
The health unit will be looking to try and reach out to parents to provide better education on using child car seats.
