Car Seat Safety

Baby in Car SeatMinnesota State Law requires that children under age eight, unless they are 4'9" or taller, must be in an appropriate, federally approved child safety seat or booster seat.

The proper use of car seats is one of the simplest and most effective methods available for protecting the lives of young children in the event of a motor vehicle crash. However, according to Safe Kids Worldwide, three out of four car seats are not installed properly. 

Taking the time to have your child's car seat checked may save their life. 

Woodbury Public Safety hosts clinics at which our three child passenger safety technicians can assist with proper installation of child seats. These clinics are free and open to Woodbury residents.
