Child safety seat checkups and inspection stations give parents and caregivers a chance to have their child's car safety seat checked by a nationally certified child passenger safety (CPS) technician. CPS technicians check for proper fit and correct use in the vehicle. This public service is free-of-charge. Download what you can expect from a CPS technician PDF.
