(Hawaii News Now) - According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children ages 3 to 14. Child safety and booster seats are effective in reducing the risk of injury or death. However, the Center for Childhood Safety reports that 4 out of 5 car seats are installed incorrectly regardless of the parents' age, education or income. In addition, research shows that as children age, they are less likely to be in the appropriate child safety seat for their age and weight.

As part of its commitment to keeping Hawaii's keiki safe on the roadways, First Insurance Company of Hawaii (FICOH) is launching free car seat safety inspections every month as an added benefit of being a FICOH policyholder. FICOH is the first and only insurance carrier in Hawaii to offer this service to its policyholders.

To help reduce the number of incorrectly installed car seats in Hawaii, FICOH's certified technicians will be conducting free car seat safety checks for their policyholders in the First Insurance Center parking garage on Ward Avenue and Beretania Street every fourth Friday from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. Each car seat consultation takes 30 minutes. This free service is by appointment only so reserve your time early; there are only 16 slots available on each date.
