Free car seat checks offered

Make sure your infant or child car seat is installed correctly at a free car seat check-up from 10 a.m.–1 p.m. on Saturday, July 27, at Mario D’Addario Buick, GMC and Cadillac, 29 Bridgeport Ave., Shelton.

Hosted by Safe Kids Greater Naugatuck Valley, Griffin Hospital’s Valley Parish Nurses and the D’Addario dealership, the event offers car seat checks and instruction on how to properly install child safety seats from certified child passenger safety technicians.

Results from previous safety seat checks have shown that four out of five car seats are used incorrectly, according to a release from Griffin Hospital.
