The Road Safety Authority have announced that their child car seat checking service 'Check it Fits' will return to Cork this month.

From previous fittings, the RSA have found that almost a third of seats fitted incorrectly needed major adjustments.

To help address this problem, the RSA Check it Fits service will be visiting Cork from 13th - 15th December, to help parents and ensure car seats and restraints are correctly fitted.

Aisling Sloyan, Senior Road Safety Promotion Officer for the RSA commented:

“While the RSA’s experience with its Check it Fits service shows that half of child car seats are fitted incorrectly, worryingly, it found that 30% of these needed a major adjustment to fix them. For example, the seat being excessively loose so as to make the fitting almost ineffective. 67% were minor adjustments, for example, the fitting being loose or a twisted seatbelt. Having a correctly fitted car seat is a simple measure parents, grandparents and guardians can take to ensure children are safe while travelling by car. I would encourage people to visit the Check it Fits service when it comes to County Cork and give yourself the peace of mind that your children are travelling safely.”

 The service takes between 10-15 minutes and runs from 10.00am – 5.30pm, it is free of charge and offers parents and guardians reassurance that their child is safe while travelling in the car.
