The RSA Check it Fits Service will be visiting Carrickmacross on 29th March 10 a.m – 5.30 p.m at O’Gorman’s Supervalu. The service is quick, it’s easy and it’s free. On the day experts will advise on how to fix any problem, demonstrate how to fit the restraint correctly and answer any queries participants might have.
The experts aim to put parents, grandparents and guardians minds at ease that their child’s car seat is safely and securely fitted in their car. Over 21,000 child car seats and restraints in Ireland were checked since 2013. Worryingly, 79% of seats required a major adjustment, of which 3% were deemed not fit for purpose and condemned, meaning they could have caused injury or even death in the event of a collision.
Don’t let your child be a statistic. Get your child car seat checked.
