BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) - We all know the importance of putting children in a car seat, but experts say more than 80 percent of child safety seats are not installed properly.
To help keep your children safe, Beaufort County EMS is partnering with Low Country Safe Kids to offer a free care seat inspection this weekend. It's a free inspection that could save your child's life.
"Majority of them want to do it right, they have good feelings for it but what we find is that a lot of the harness straps where we put the children especially this time of year are not tight enough," said Danny Tinnel, Beaufort County EMS.
The car seat inspection will take place this Saturday, November 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Target parking lot in Bluffton.
