Child safety in cars: The Check it Fits Roadshow

Research from the most recent roadshow in May has revealed that as many as three out of four parents fit their child's car restraint incorrectly. This means that the child restraint would have provided little or no protection to the child in the event of a collision.

Experts will be on hand at each venue to provide advice and guidance on selecting and installing the correct child restraint for your child and car. For any parents who have installed their child restraint incorrectly, the experts will provide a practical demonstration on how to fit it correctly.

The service is free of charge and will be provided at the following locations :
