Enfield Council Supports Child Safety

Category: Industry News

Enfield Council is holding a series of free car seat checks for parents to ensure they have the correct child restraints for their child and vehicle.

The sessions, which take place right across the borough, started on Wednesday 17 February 2016 and will continue right through until October.

The law states that all children under 135 cm, or roughly 4ft 5in, tall must use the proper child seat when travelling by car, but, worryingly, research by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, suggests four out of every five child seats are fitted incorrectly.

This event will give new and prospective parents and carers the chance to pop in and check they have the correct seat for their child and car and make sure it is fitted correctly. If parents or carers already have a car seat of their own they can also ask for a demonstration on how to fit it properly or they can try out one of the team's car seats before they buy a seat themselves.

There will also be free face-painting for every child who has their seat fitted by the team.

Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Daniel Anderson, said: "This is a great free initiative which will help improve the safety of children travelling in cars by helping to ensure that parents are aware of how to correctly install their child's car seats.

"Enfield Council is committed to reducing the number of deaths and serious injuries on our roads and this initiative will help us achieve this aim."

Events run between 10am and 2pm and are being held at:
