Council Car Seat Safety Drive

Council experts will be handing out specialist advice next week (20th October) to anyone who has a child car seat.

As well as advice, special safety tests will be carried out at venues throughout the county borough.

Council Leader Ali Thomas said, "It is important people check that their car seat is fitted and used correctly."

He added, "Child car seats can dramatically improve the safety of children in the car. But unfortunately, about 80% of car seats fitted in Neath Port Talbot are incorrect. Unknowingly parents could be putting the lives of their children at risk.

I would urge anyone who is interested to come along to Morrisons stores at Neath and Port Talbot and Tesco Pontardawe this week for their free car seat check."

Car seats will be tested from 9am until 3pm on Tuesday 20th October at Morrisons Neath, and at the same times on Wednesday 21st October at Morrisons Port Talbot and Thursday 22nd at Pontardawe Tesco.
