Fitzgerald Auto Mall - 27419 US Highway 19 N. Clearwater
Road injuries are the leading cause of preventable deaths and injuries to children in the U.S. Installed properly, child safety seats can reduce fatal injuries by more than 70 percent for infants younger than one year of age and 54 percent for toddlers between the ages of 1-4 in passenger cars. The Florida Suncoast Safe Kids Coalition, led by Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, will sponsor a free car safety seat check where experts will be available to help parents make sure their safety seats are properly installed and will also be available for interviews with media.
