Passenger Safety Inspections
Free Car Seat Inspections
Working with the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee, St. Mary’s has been training families on how to properly install infant, toddler, and booster seats for the past 12 years. During this time, St. Mary’s certified child passenger safety technicians have found that over 90 percent of car seats are improperly installed. A properly installed car seat can mean the difference between life and death in the case of a crash, and it can also dramatically reduce the risk of injury for babies and toddlers.
St. Mary’s holds free car seat inspections at our flagship facility in Bayside on the 2nd and 3rd Fridays of each month from 9-2, by appointment only. The inspection generally take 20-30 minutes and must be made in advance by calling 718-281-8571.
St. Mary’s is also a leader in promoting the safe transportation of children with special needs and medically complex conditions. We offer transportation evaluations for children with special needs upon request, so the family does not need to wait until our fitting station schedule. A limited number of loaner seats for children with special needs are available while families seek funding through their insurance carrier.
All inspections are led by certified technicians and are by appointment only. To make an appointment for your next car seat inspection, or for more information please call 718-281-8571.
