Car Seat Safety

Every day across America, parents and caregivers drive young children to and from school, daycare, the store, and around town in car seats and boosters. Yet nearly half of all car seats are installed incorrectly, which means your child may not be traveling as safely as possible.

To help keep children safe on our roads, NHTSA is sponsoring Child Passenger Safety Week from September 23-29. The goal is to make sure your child is in the correct car seat, that it’s properly installed and used.

Register your car seat to receive important safety updates

Registering your seat makes sense: It gives the manufacturer the ability to contact you about recalls and safety notices. It’s also easy: Just send in the card that came with your car seat or fill out a simple form on the manufacturer’s website.

Your child’s safety could depend on it.

Do you need help installing a car seat? Are you sure that your car seat is installed correctly or that you are using the right one? You can get help at a car seat inspection station. Certified technicians will inspect your car seat for free or low cost. Appointments may be required.

Below is a list of certified car seat installation locations located on Long Island that you can call to make an appointment to make sure your car seat is installed properly.
