Car seat checks being offered monthly

WEST SALEM, Wis. (WKBT) - Did you know that nearly 7 out of 10 car seats checked last year were not installed correctly putting kids at an increased risk of injury or death.

Brenengen Chevrolet in West Salem and Onalaska will be providing free car seat checks from April through September.

Seat checks and advice will be provided by a certified technician who is there to answer all of your car seat safety questions.

"So car seats are surprisingly complicated for a lot of people. There's a lot of things to adjust and then there's a lot of things to look at in your vehicle too so lots of different scenarios. The overwhelming majority of families that we see come in with their car seats, we do need to adjust the seats some way, and we do have the technicians who have gone through training to help families make sure their car seats are correct," said Maggie Smith of Brenengen.

Free car seat checks will be offered at Brenengen Chevrolet in West Salem on the first Thursday of each month and in Onalaska on the second Thursday of each month from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. No appointment is needed.
