CAR SEAT TECHS FROM TOP BRANDS ON SITE IN HONOR OF CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY WEEK

WASHINGTON, D.C., SEPTEMBER 27, 2018- In recognition of Child Passenger Safety Week, the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) will host a car seat and booster seat check event this Saturday, September 29th at the Capitol Hill Montessori at Logan (215 G St NE, Washington, DC 20002) from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Car seat techs from top brands, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and local advocate groups will be available to check car seats and answer any questions consumers may have. Companies on site will include Britax, Chicco, Dorel, Goodbaby/Evenflo, Graco, mifold, Nuna, Safe Traffic System, UPPAbaby, Mommy's Helper and more. Techs will be checking and installing any and all brands of car or booster seats.

Motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death and hospitalization for children. Car seats are up to 71% effective at preventing fatalities, however past checks in the Washington, D.C area have shown that 73%-90% of car seats had at least one error and most had multiple errors.

This car seat and booster check follows JPMA's September 27th press conference with the American Academy of Pediatrics, NHTSA and Safe Kids Worldwide where all four organizations clarified current recommendations on current child car seat safety.

To raise awareness about keeping children safe on our roads, NHTSA is sponsoring Child Passenger Safety Week from September 23-29.
