Caregivers who want to make sure their children are buckled up properly can sign up for a free child safety inspection with the City of Victoria’s trained child passenger safety technicians.

To schedule an inspection, visit www.victoriatx.gov/carseat or call 361-485-3050.

The City was recently certified as a car seat fitting station by the Texas A&M AgriLife Passenger Safety and KidSafe Initiatives Program. This means that the City has agreed to follow best practice standards for educating caregivers about how to safely restrain their children in a vehicle.

Contact 361-485-3050.Court Administrator Tiffany Totah, program coordinator and one of the City’s 13 child passenger safety technicians, encouraged residents to sign up for an inspection so they can learn about best practices that they may not be aware of.

Tiffany Totah“We can teach you how to properly use the seat belt system or the LATCH system in your vehicle and how to install the car seat according to best practice for your specific seat and vehicle,” Totah said. “I learned so much about car seat safety when I was going through the certification for this program, so I know that other caregivers can benefit from this information.”

Materials and training costs for the program are funded by revenue from the child safety fee (a $1.50 fee that residents pay when they register their vehicles in Victoria County).
