If you don't know the answers to these and other car seat questions you are not alone. More than 90% of car seats in the State of Maine and either not correctly installed or misused.

Parents, caregivers, grandparents, anyone can ensure their child’s safety seats are properly installed; compatible with their vehicle; haven’t been subject to a recall; and are the appropriate seat for the child just by coming to one of our seat check events.

It is preferred that you have your child/children with you unless you are pregnant parents awaiting the birth of your baby.
