  • Cottage Health: Free Child Car Seat Checks Saturday, December 7, 2019 in Santa Barbara

    SANTA BARBARA — Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital Trauma Services and the California Highway Patrol will offer free, drive-up child car seat checks. Registration is not needed. No citations will be issued, and there will be no driver license or registration checks. All parents are encouraged to have their child seats inspected by our safety experts, as up to 80 percent of car seats are not properly installed. 

    California state laws require children less than 2 years old be rear facing unless they weigh 40 pounds or more or are at least 40 inches tall. Also, children under 8 years old must be buckled into a car seat or a booster in the back seat. Only children who are at least 8 years old and 57 inches tall or taller can ride in the back seat without a booster. 

    For more information, please call Molly Hawkins at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital Trauma Services, 805-569-7478.
