    Today, learn how to properly protect your child in the car. It is National Seat Check Saturday and the District is offering free car seat inspections.

    You can have you child’s car seat checked out anytime between 10 A.M. and 2 P.M. at the DMV Vehicle Inspection Station at 1001 Half Street, SW. Your car seat will be inspected by a certified child passenger safety technician.

    The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says roughly 3 out of every 4 child safety seats are not installed properly.  A correctly installed seat reduces the risk of fatal injury by more than 70 percent in children under the age of one, the agency says.

    National Seat Check Saturday marks the end of Child Passenger Safety Week.
