(BLOOMINGTON) - Riley Physicians, in partnership with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and
the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, is offering free car seat safety checks to parents, guardians, grandparents,
childcare providers and anyone who drives children in a vehicle.

"The top five areas where we see problems at these car seat checks are harness slot choice, chest clip placement,
harness tightness, accessories and car seat appropriateness," said Jennifer Hacker, Child Passenger Safety
Technician. "Our technicians take into account the specific car, car seat and child during their Car Seat Safety
Checks."

Each inspection can take 30 minutes and includes access to valuable information and resources to help keep your
child safe. Please bring the following items to your car seat check:

  • The car seat
