This car seat check event is free to the public and will feature volunteers from Safe Kids Pima County who are properly trained on the correct way to install car seats to ensure the safety of your little loved ones. The event will also include a BBQ, face painting, a cotton candy machine, and other family-friendly attractions for all who come to participate.

 

Car seats reduce the risk for death to infants and children by 71 percent when they are in a motor vehicle accident. We are committed to giving back to the community and we want to enrich the lives of the people in our community by referring people to these events.

 

According to Safe Kids’ website, here are the top four tips about car seat safety:

 

  1. 1- You need to buy the right car seat for your child. The correct car seat for you child depends on their age and size.
  2. 2- The installations of the right car seat must be done correctly.
  3. 3- Get the right fit.
  4. 4- Know when to change your child’s car seat as he/she grows.

September is National Child Passenger Safety Month and we feel that it is an important issue that needs to be addressed in our community. Did you know that 73 percent of car seats are installed incorrectly? That statistic alone illustrates why events like this are important to have in our community.

 

On top of hosting four car seat check events in Arizona, Larry H. Miller Charities will be donating $10,000 to Safe Kids Arizona to support this event as well. This donation will be used to buy car seats to have at each car seat check event. These car seats will be given out to participants when their car seat isn’t up to code or is unable to be installed correctly.

 

Enriching lives is our motto. Listen to why Gail Miller, Owners of Larry H. Miller Dealerships believes that we have an obligation to give back to the communities that we are in.



Remember, the car seat check event will be hosted at Larry H. Miller Dodge Ram Tucson on October 21, from 8 – 11 a.m. Please come out and ensure that your children’s car seats have been installed correctly.
