Free child car safety seat checks
22 February 2012
The road safety team are calling on parents, grandparents and carers to have their child car seats checked.
The road safety trailer is out and about across the county borough offering free checks and advice.
The team is in Morrisons in Baglan on Monday 5th March and in Morrisons in Neath on Tuesday 6th March between 10am and 3pm.
Knowing which car seat is most appropriate for a child depending on height and weight can be very confusing and there can be the added worry of the seat not being fitted correctly to fully protect the child.
Council Leader, Ali Thomas, said, "This is an extremely worthwhile service being offered by the road safety team free of charge.
"Child safety in a car is something noone can be complacent about and I urge everyone to go along for this free check.
"It only takes a short time but could save a child's life."
