Free child’s car seat safety check

by Jonathan Kearney

Knowsley’s Road Safety Team, along with experts from Good Egg Safety, are inviting people to get their child’s car seat checked next week in Kirkby.

Car seat checking events regularly find that approximately 70% of seats aren’t fitted correctly.

While some faults are minor, almost a third of seats checked have major errors in the way they are fitted meaning they are either damaged or fitted to a car in a way that was dangerous or incompatible to the child or car. It is also often found that children aren’t travelling in a seat at all.

You can have your car seat checked for free by the experts from Good Egg Safety at the Morrison’s car park in Kirkby Town Centre (Irlam Drive, L32 8RE) on Monday 5 June between 10am and 3pm.

There is no need to book an appointment, just pop along to the Morrison’s car park and look out for the team from Good Egg Safety who will be wearing hi-viz jackets!
