Finding your nearest car seat inspection site
With crashes being a leading cause of death for all children, ensuring your child is in a correctly installed car seat that is appropriate for their size is the best way to ensure their safety when your family is on the road. But many parents still misuse their child’s seat, due to uncertainty over which type of seat their child should be in or confusion when installing it. There is plenty of help out there for parents who need a hand.
Car seat inspection sites are organizations with at least one Child Passenger Safety (CPS) technician on staff where you can go to ensure your child’s seat has been installed correctly. Technicians are certified via training and continuing education on the proper usage and installation of car and booster seats. Their seat inspection services are free of charge.
The map below shows the locations of all CPS inspection sites in Massachusetts, including those with technicians who speak Spanish or who are certified to help children with special healthcare needs.
