About Car Seat Clinics
The Beaverton Police Department, in a partnership with Safe Kids Washington County and Kuni Auto Center, conduct free child car seat clinics throughout the year at 3725 SW Cedar Hills Blvd., Beaverton, OR 97005. A certified technician will help parents and caregivers learn to install and use their child safety restraints properly. No appointment is required, just drop by during the event. Each car seat check will take about 30 minutes. The clinics run from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The last car will be accepted at 11:30 a.m. unless demand necessitates an earlier cut off time. The dates for upcoming car seat clinics are posted on the Police Department calendar.
This clinic is designed to teach parents and caregivers how to properly install and use a child safety seat. A properly installed and used child safety seat will greatly decrease the chance of your child sustaining a serious or life threating injury during a motor vehicle crash.
One of the most important jobs you have as a parent is keeping your child safe when riding in a vehicle. Each year thousands of young children are killed or injured in car crashes. The proper use of car seats helps keep children safe. But with so many different car seats on the market, it’s no wonder parents find this overwhelming.
The best car seat is the one that you will use properly. This is what we hope to teach you when you come to one of our car seat clinics. The uses of safety belts and child safety seats have been proven to greatly reduce your chances of sustaining serious injuries during a motor vehicle crash.
