WICHITA FALLS, TX (RNN Texoma) - The Texas Department of Transportation is joining safety advocates across the state to remind parents of the importance of always buckling up their children properly.

On Saturday, September 29, specialists will be on hand to check child safety seats. The event was made possible thanks to the collaboration of United Regional Health Care Systems, Community Healthcare Center, and TxDOT.

The event is taking place from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the parking lot across from Phyllis Hiraki Dental Center at 110 Lee Street in Wichita Falls.

If you cannot make it to the event, TxDOT’s free safety seat check inspections are also available during the week and only take about 20 to 30 minutes.

All you have to do to schedule a seat check-up is head to SaveMeWithaSeat.org and enter your ZIP code to find the nearest TxDOT district office near you.
