RSA – Child Car Safety – Check it Fits for Free

August 21, 2018

Check it Fits Child Car Safety

Child Car Safety – This August the RSA’s Check it Fits service in partnership with Toyota will be visiting County Leitrim. Did you know it’s the law that all children under 150cms or 36kgs must use a child car seat appropriate to their weight and height? In Ireland as many as 4 out of 5 child car seats are incorrectly fitted which can lead to serious injury or even death in a collision.

Since October 2013, the RSA’s ‘Check it Fits’ Service has checked over 30,000 child car seats and restraints in Ireland. Worryingly, 79% of seats required a major adjustment, of which 3% were deemed not fit for purpose and condemned, meaning they could have caused injury or even death in the event of a collision.

The Check it Fits service is quick, it’s easy, it’s free. On the day our experts will advise on how to fix any problem, demonstrate how to fit the restraint correctly and answer any queries participants might have. Our experts aim to put parent’s, grandparent’s and guardian’s minds at ease that their child’s car seat is safely and securely fitted in their car.

If you have any questions or require any additional information please let us know for more information on the service visit www.checkitfits.ie or contact them directly by emailing checkitfits@rsa.ie
