Ever wonder if it’s OK for your 12 year-old to sit in the front seat?
Is your toddler ready for a booster?
Does the baby REALLY have to stay rear-facing until she’s TWO?
“Parents are more informed than ever about kid’s safety issues,” according to Ashley DeHaye, one of RCCSS’s SafeKids certified techs. But even now, with the wealth of good information to be had about car safety, out of all the parents who think they have their child in the right car seat, only 20% actually do.
20%!!! Think about that – this is NOT a great statistic.
In 2012, an estimated 121,000 children under the age of 13 riding as passengers in cars, SUVs, pickups and vans were injured in car crashes. As parents we can stress about a myriad of things, but car seat safety is the one issue that should be most important to us statistically.
Rocket City Car Seat Safe does more than checks – they do car safety consulting of all types, troubleshooting, and will even come talk to your Mom’s Group, PTO, or civic group about the importance of what they do. Their Facebook Page is full of awesome infographics, funny memes (Ryan Gosling is an advocate for car seat safety – who knew?), helpful videos, and hard statistics. And the best thing? It’s all free, all the time.
How to Make a Free Reservation for a Seat Check
- Go to Rocket City Car Seat Safe’s Facebook Page.

It’s that easy!
