Around 80-percent of child car restraints are used incorrectly, so the Benton County Sheriff's Office is working to change that statistic.
Their annual community car seat clinic was held Saturday at the Pleasant Crossing Walmart in Rogers. Several certified child safety seat technicians were on hand making sure carseats were installed properly and that parents were using them properly.
Lt. Thomas See knows ensuring proper use of child restraints can be life-saving.
"There's a proper way to actually install the child restraint into the vehicle, and a proper way to put the child in the child restraint... Our main goal is to reduce the child fatalities or injuries in the event of a collision."
See said not using car seats properly can be just as bad as not having a restraint at all. For folks in need, loaner car seats were available at no cost, paid for by grants from the Arkansas Highway Safety Office and Walmart.
