Make an appointment to have your child's seat checked by trained child passenger safety technicians at this FREE event by calling SafetyBeltSafe U.S.A. at 310 222 6860.
Find out why children should ride rear-facing until at least age 2 and use a booster seat until 10 – 12 years old. The checkup is also a drop-off site for SAFE AND GREEN, a program that collects old, expired or damaged seats for recycling.
