The Doña Ana County Health and Human Services Department, in conjunction with the New Mexico Department of Transportation and Safer New Mexico Now, will conduct free car seat checks during a safety clinic this weekend in Las Cruces.
The clinic will be held at Kohl's department store at 2500 N. Triviz on Saturday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
The clinic will provide parents and caregivers hands-on instruction from certified car seat technicians on the correct use and installation of child safety seats. They will also provide proper installation, technicians will check for broken parts and whether or not the seat has been recalled, has expired, or is otherwise unsafe.
Saturday's event is open to the public and is free of charge.
