Travel safe with free child and baby seat checks

Parents and carers can take advantage of a FREE child and baby seat check by expert fitters this Friday, 20 April.

The check is a joint initiative between Early Learning Association Australia (ELAA), VicRoads South Eastern Road Safety Group, and the Member for Mulgrave and Victorian Premier – Daniel Andrews MP.

Parents and carers can bring their car to the Mackie Road Neighbourhood House and an expert fitter will make sure their child or baby seat is fitted correctly*. There will also be free 15 minute information sessions on road safety from ELAA’s Road Safety Education team who deliver the Starting Out Safely Road Safety Education program in Victoria on behalf of VicRoads.

There will also be fun for kids with appearances by Victoria’s road safety mascot ThingleToodle and his friend, Professor Eric Speriment, throughout the day.

What: Free child and baby car seat check.

Bookings for seat checks are essential and can be made by calling the electoral office of Daniel Andrews on 03 9548 5644.

*NB: this session will check that seats are fitted correctly, but can’t fit seats for the first time.
