The RSA’s ‘Check it Fits’ Service is coming to Kanturk!

The RSA’s ‘Check it Fits’ Service is coming to Kanturk!

  

This October the RSA’s Check it Fits service in partnership with Toyota will be visiting Kanturk, Co. Cork on Friday 25th October in O’Callaghan’s Motor Works.

Did you know it’s the law that all children under 150cms or 36kgs must use a child car seat appropriate to their weight and height. In Ireland as many as 4 out of 5 child car seats are incorrectly fitted which can lead to serious injury or even death in a collision.

Since October 2013, the RSA’s ‘Check it Fits’ Service has checked over 35,000 child car seats and restraints in Ireland. Worryingly, 79% of seats required a major adjustment, of which 3% were deemed not fit for purpose and condemned, meaning they could have caused injury or even death in the event of a collision.

The Check it Fits service is quick, it’s easy, it’s free. On the day the experts will advise on how to fix any problem, demonstrate how to fit the restraint correctly and answer any queries participants might have. The experts aim to put parent’s, grandparent’s and guardian’s minds at ease that their child’s car seat is safely and securely fitted in their car.

They will be visiting the following locations in Cork:
