How To Get Your Child Seat Checked For Safety

September 18th, 2015 by

 

As a parent, there are so many things to worry about. Things you never thought you’d ever be worrying about. Like, where is that marble? There were ten marbles here and now there are only nine. Is it in your nose? Please don’t be in your nose! Not again! The hospital is starting to look at us funny. Oh here it is. Phew! Wait, where are the other nine now?

Marbles are one thing, but don’t worry about your child’s car seat safety. Let us at Ressler Motors help you feel confident and secure that your child is safely buckled and strapped into their car seat every time you get into the car. Take these simple steps, and breathe easier every time you get into the car.
