Wokingham Borough Council is running in‐car child safety seat checks, in partnership with Child Seat Safety, at Tesco Superstore, Finchampstead Road, Wokingham on Thursday 1 September from 11am to 4pm.


Child Seat Safety experts will be showing parents and carers the correct way to fit in‐car child safety seats. This is important because:

  • An unrestrained child can be killed in an impact with speeds as low as 5 mph
  • If properly restrained a child is three times less likely to sustain a head injury in a collision than an unrestrained child
  • Each year around 15 children aged up to 11-years-old are killed while travelling in cars, about 225 are seriously injured and over 5,000 suffer slight injuries
