Bury Council Road Safety Team are delivering child car seat clinics offering a great opportunity for parents to have their car seats checked for free.
It is important to stress that the Car Seat Clinics are being used to educate parents, correct any mistakes and improve safety. These car seat clinics are delivered in a friendly manner to help parents access support, information and give them peace of mind by ensuring that their child car seat is correctly fitted in their vehicle. Results from car seat clinics delivered in Bury over the past five years have shown that of the 542 car seats checked, 44% (241) have been incorrectly fitted or were unsuitable for the child or vehicle. This means that they would not have worked effectively in the event of a crash or collision.
Whilst these clinics were initially set up to assist members of the public, we also welcome any teams that work with young children, coming down for information, resources and car seat checks. For any teams with multiple vehicles and multiple child car seats that they would like to be checked, we would be grateful if you would attend during the last hour of each day as this tends to be a little quieter. If that is not convenient please contact Bury Council Road Safety Team prior to the event to ensure that we can deliver you a prompt service, whilst maintaining minimum disruption to others that may be attending.
