National Seat Check Day

Free Car Seats if Yours is Damaged or Expired!

Car crashes are the leading cause of death among children. But in many cases, these deaths could have been prevented if the child was properly secured. In fact, 3 out of 4 children are not as secure as they should be, even if they’re in the appropriate car seat for their age, height, and weight. There’s nothing more devastating than the loss of a child. That’s why Daniel Stark is taking action to ensure children ride safely every time they get in a car. For the past 11 years, our firm has proudly supported National Seat Check Saturday. The annual event teaches parents how to properly install a car seat and secure their children, as well as when to transition to new car seats as their children grow.

We want all passengers in your car to be safe and secure so that you can drive with confidence. Join Daniel Stark in supporting this important effort at our next National Seat Check Day event. If your child’s seat is damaged or expired, we’ll provide you with a new one for free!


2017 Seat Check Saturday Statistics

Inspections conducted
Children arrived correctly restrained
New seats issued
Seats were found to be on recall
Old or unsafe seats were collected
Children arrived totally unrestrained or improperly secured

The proper use of child safety seats reduces the risk of injury and death, leading to reduced medical costs, avoidance of lost future earnings, and improved quality of life after a collision. This adds up to an estimated $2,159 per child age 0 to 4, $2,606 per child age 4 to 7 for new seats distributed, and $622 per child for seat misuse corrected with an assumed 75% continued use.

Based on the estimations above, the total economic impact for the 204 inspections at the event on September 23rd, 2017, is $267,974.
