The National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that roughly three out of four child safety seats are not used correctly.

Year round, by appointment the Texas Department of Transportation offers free safety seat check-ups in each of the 25 district offices. To make an appointment to get your car seat inspected, please call the Texas Department of Transportation’s Traffic Safety Specialist for your district.
