Child car seat verification network

Child car seat verification network

Did you know that one in two children is not properly seated while riding in a car and is therefore not safe? Ensure that this is not the case with your child!

Is your child safe in your vehicle?

The child safety car seat verification network was established by the Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec in collaboration with CAA‑Quebec, which manages its activities.

Contact an organization that belongs to Quebec’s Child Car Seat Verification Network, of which CAA‑Quebec is a member.

The members of this network include automobile dealers, police forces, health and social services centres and some CAA‑Quebec Approved Auto Repair Services outlets. All of these organizations care deeply about children’s safety in vehicles and all have received appropriate training based on strict criteria.

Car seats are absolutely essential*

The statistics show it:

  • About 1,150 passengers aged nine and under are killed or injured in road accidents every year in Quebec.
  • Many of these accidents occur close to home and more than half in zones of 50 km/h or less.
  • Child car safety seats reduce the risk of death and serious injury in road accidents by up to 70%. Fully 86.4% of parents of children under age five use a safety seat that is adequately adapted to the child’s weight and height, but only 50.1% of these seats have been installed correctly. It is necessary to ensure:
    • that the seat is right for the child’s weight and height;
    • that it is securely attached to the vehicle seat;
    • that the child is securely buckled into the seat.
