RSA Check It Fits coming to Dundalk



The Road Safety Authority’s ‘Check It Fits’ service will be visiting SuperValu Fairways, Dundalk on Friday August 19th from 10am to 5.30pm. Experts in child car seat safety will be on hand to offer advice on different types of seats available, how to fix any problems and demonstrate how to correctly install the restraint.

Travelling by car can be one of the most dangerous things a baby or child is likely to do each day. Parents and guardians should ensure that small passengers are well protected by having the proper child car seat for their height and weight correctly installed in their vehicle.

 “I would ask anyone with a child seat fitted in their vehicle to avail of this important service,” Adrian O’Sullivan, Road Safety Officer, Louth County Council, said. “Many parents will have had child seats fitted during lockdown and may not have properly checked them for suitability or adjustment. The law currently states that all children under 150cms or 36kgs must use a child car seat appropriate to their weight and height”.

The ‘Check It Fits’ service is free and no appointment is necessary. The service which accommodates all makes and models of cars and child car seats will also be Smyth’s Toys, M1 Retail Park, Drogheda on Thursday  August 18th from 10am to 5.30pm.
