Georges River runs child restraint checks

In a move to prioritise child safety on local roads, Georges River Council is offering a free child restraint fitting service and car seat checks for residents.

Supported by Transport for NSW, the initiative ensures that the local community has access to authorised fitters who can expertly install and assess child restraints, harnesses, and booster seats, ensuring the safety of our youngest passengers, said Georges River Council Mayor, Nick Katris.

“The safety of our children while traveling in vehicles is of paramount importance,” said Mayor Katris.

“This initiative underscores our commitment to ensuring that families within the Georges River Local Government area have access to the resources and expertise needed to keep their children safe on the road.”

While most services will be provided free of charge, there may be a nominal cost if specialised parts are required to fit the seat, Council said in a statement.

Residents must be able to provide proof of address within the Georges River Local Government Area upon arrival at the site.
