Car Seat Safety

You have the power to make a lifesaving difference for your child's safety while riding in a car.

We know the care and safety of your child is the most important thing on your mind. Unfortunately, car crashes are the leading cause of death among children, but the proper car seat and installation can provide the protection your child needs. Prior to the delivery of your baby, we encourage you to reach out to our certified safety seat technician for a free appointment to install your child's car seat or confirm placement.

A properly secured car seat for your child does not stop after he/she is a newborn. Remember, as your child grows, so does the need and requirement of the car seat to keep him or her safe. Check out this important information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on car seats and boosters. Utilize our certified safety seat technician to ensure proper installation of the car seat throughout your child's development.

Have us Ensure Your Child's Car Seat is Properly Installed

If you are concerned your child's car seat may not be properly installed, have one of our certified safety seat technicians check it out. To schedule an appointment, contact Sergeant Lynch at 540-654-5788. Certified safety seat technicians are also available for free child safety checks every Tuesday and Thursday between 8:00 a.m. to noon at police headquarters. No appointment is necessary, and you do not have to be a Fredericksburg resident to benefit from this service.
