PennDOT, PSP, Pa. Traffic Injury Prevention Project to Team Up for Car Seat Safety Check in Warren

June 12, 2023

HARRISBURG, Pa. – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP), and the Pennsylvania Traffic Injury Prevention Project (PA TIPP) are partnering to host a series of car seat safety checks this summer.

Upcoming car seat check events include:

  • June 23, 2023, from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM at Meadville Fire Department, 850 Park Avenue, Meadville, PA, 16335;
  • June 29, 2023, from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Edinboro Fire Department,125 Meadville Street, Edinboro, PA, 16412; and
  • July 20, 2023, from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM at Warren General Hospital, 2 West Crescent Park, Warren, PA, 16365.

These free car seat inspections are one of many tools motorists can use to ensure their children are properly and safely secured inside their vehicle.

After a car seat has been successfully installed, motorists should also register it with the manufacturer to receive important information on recalls and safety notices. NHTSA offers an email alert regarding all car seat and booster seat recalls.

PennDOT provides funding for more than 75 fitting stations where trained technicians will check a child safety seat to ensure it is properly installed. Parents and caregivers can utilize the PA TIPP fitting station directory or NHTSA’s car seat inspection search to find a nearby site.

The Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) offer walk-in days every month for a child safety seat technician to install or inspect child safety seats free of charge. A full listing can be found on the PSP official website –

Additionally, the PA TIPP website – has a complete listing of car seat check events [KJ1} taking place across the state.
