Yardley, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/31/2016 -- Big Oak Citgo, the leading mechanic shop and provider of PA auto inspections to Yardley, PA area car owners, announced that they now offer free child passenger safety inspections to anyone who is interested. The inspections come with no catch or purchase necessary. Big Oak Citgo made the announcement in light of their shop manager, Mike Cooper, attaining his Child Passenger Safety (CPS) certification. As a CPS, he is qualified to perform the inspections, and educate parents and guardians on vehicle child safety best practices.
In a coinciding write-up just released via the shop's website, Big Oak Citgo offered parents safety tips for maintaining safe vehicles post-inspection. They also offered statistics. According to Big Oak Citgo, citing Safe Kids Worldwide, one young person is fatally injured in a roadway accident every 90 seconds. Furthermore, for every fatality, there are 10 injuries faced by youths. Roadway injuries are the number one culprit of accidental child fatality in the United States.
Big Oak Citgo's article urged parents to use the proper car seats for their children, according to age, height and weight. Infants and toddlers should use rear-facing car seats, while young children should use forward facing mechanisms. Older children, up to around 12 years, should use booster seats.
The article also advised parents to learn the facts about their vehicles' child safety mechanisms, like safety locks, window locks, interior trunk releases and so on. Big Oak Citgo will walk parents through their vehicles' mechanisms during inspection.
