Car seats checked to ensure safety Saturday in Jeffersontown

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Car seats were checked Saturday at Valvoline Instant Oil Change on Taylorsville Road in Jeffersontown.

It's part of a nationwide program, making sure all car seats are safe.

People could also learn more about new car seat laws and how to be safe from technicians and All-State agents.

"Basically, the idea is when the people come in, there's usually something wrong with the car seat.," said Ryan Hawker with Dole Juvenile Group. 

"Eighty percent of car seats are mis-installed. So they're coming in when there's usually a problem or two, and those kids are leaving safer than when they came."

Parents also brought unwanted, expired or unsafe car seats that will be recycled.
