No Child Car Seat - No Excuse

Check it Fits Service

The Road Safety Authority has introduced ‘Check it Fits’ in response to a frightening statistic that shows that as many as 4 out of 5 child car seats are incorrectly fitted. Incorrect fitting can result in serious injury or a fatality in the event of a collision.

 

The RSA ‘Check it Fits’ Service is a full-time, nationwide, free, expert service which aims to put parents’, grandparents’ and guardians’ minds at ease that their child’s car seat is safely and securely fitted in their car.

 

A survey of 5,000 checks, which were recorded at the RSA’s ‘Check it Fits’ Service, showed that over 4,000 of the child car seats checked needed some type of adjustment. Worryingly, most of those seats required a major adjustment. One hundred and fifty of the seats checked were condemned – they were not fit for purpose, meaning they could have caused injury or even death if there was a collision.

 

The Check it Fits service is quick, easy and free of charge. It’s travelling around the country, and our experts will advise on how to fix any problem. They will demonstrate how to fit the restraints correctly and answer any questions you might have.
